Voted RAR. Don't think I need to say something about the subject, it already been discussed elsewhere.

I voted for zip.
Why? Because it's standard (I know abandonia is breaking every standard :bleh: )
I have 56k connection, but I don't mind.
If you haven't noticed WinRar has compression metods which vary from fastest (larger) to best (smaller file size).
So if you didn't use WinRar's best compression metod - GET TO WORK!!!

Just to mention this can be used to compress in zip format, so you don't have to change extension, to change size! k:

The two ZIP and RAR formats of WinRar are still different, so the ending has to be either .zip or .rar.
Well, of course I voted for RAR.
But as you probably almost all know, to convert all the archives on the site from ZIP to RAR would take heck of a time, so it was decided to not to convert them. In that case the vote is only interesting for seeing how many people would like the idea of converting...

I voted zip. Rar is maybe better, but like Kosta said, zip is still standard for most people around. Especially for not so experienced one. I think dos emulation is complicated enough for them. Don't make any needless changes. It isn't worth it.
