Does ne1 Still use PKZip?

Does anyone still use PkZip? Or do you use Win Zip?

I remember using PK Zip to unzip Commander Keen games off of the internet when I was like six.

But now I use winzip.

Never heard of it. I think that everyone and their dog uses Winzip. Maybe WinRar might also be used though.

PKZip was used b4 any of those though, like back in the 1990-1996 or around that time.

I think so, I just remember PKZip being a dos extraction program.

you'd have to type it like this

c:>pkunzip woot.zip >>c:>

That means to unzip the file to the c drive.
It's been so long since I have used Dos though that I have forgotten alot of the commands.

I think they have a graphical PKZip for windows.  It's good to use PKZip because most people don't buy winzip.  (That's why I use other free zipping programs! :) )

I have Winzip 9.0 with the KeyGen, so I don't have to worry about the evaluation copy thing popping up.  :angry:



So I would have to say No I don't PKWare Utilites.

oic, yah, I kindof guessed that they would have a graphical version, I was just wondering if any1 still used it, now that there are so many out there.

I don't mind the evaluation thing, but I use winRAR more now (Since it can do Zip and RAR)

I only use WinRAR to Extract RAR File.

But WinZip is the one I use often.

For zip I just use WinXP "Zipped folder".
For rar, ace, tgz, etc I use WinRAR.

I have used PKUNZIP on my old Dos "Zenith EazyPC" to unzip text-games etc. (Since it only allows 720KB disks to be used)

Well, I'm glad to see that at least one person used to use the DOS version!
