What's wrong with Stuffit
Authored by: doneitner on Sep 30, '05 05:18:21PM

It's always nice to know one's options and how to get helpful updates like this. Thanks for the tip.

As to Stuffit's usefulness... as a format Stuffit is proprietary. Zip was too for many years (PKZip and all that). But as a program, Stuffit seems to do the job very nicely; it supports more formats than just its own so there's no need to use the proprietary Stuffit format even if using the Stuffit program. It's like using WinRAR on Windows -- it still supports Zip so no need to use the also proprietary RAR format.
