Yeah I know.  Microsoft Office users for example. :)

tar I understand (although there are a lot of different implementations

I think rar v3 is almost exclusively used by software pirates to get the

RAR v3 is used because pirates are creatures of habit, and it always *used* to be best, and easy to use with pirated WinRAR. 7zip gives better compression for those who are doing more than following tradition
