Does anyone know a free software alternative to RAR???
Use 'tar' combined with gzip or bzip2 to create a .tar.gz or .tar.bz2
man tar, man bzip2 and man gzip for more info :)



yeah, I know that, but I was talking about a program to decompress RAR files... I know I don't really need it, but today a friend sent me a rar file and I needed to tell  him to recompress it as zip and send it again... (of course that the first thing he did was talk about the dis-advantages  of using GNU/Linux...)
So I want it so the next time it happens I won't give anyone the chance to defame GNU =P

sorry for the bad english
