    Just a foot note, Winrar isn’t free. It has a 40 days evaluation period at the end of which you must buy the software to use it.
    True, rarlabs didn’t bother to put any preventions from using winrar after those 40 days (preventions which would have been cracked in less then 1% of the invested time creating them), but that doesn’t make it free.
