why zip?
Authored by: ngb on Jul 31, '06 02:55:48PM

I think zip is slightly more universal than tar, in terms of distributing an archive to both Mac and PC users. I can appreciate the need to send files organized as an archive, rather than willy-nilly, even if there is no siginicant space savings.
