7z is rather widely used from what I have seen. All the random zips I
have downloaded over the past probably 2 years, probably 80% have been
7z. 7z has been included in all the *nix distro's I have used for the
past few years, and most zip programs on Windows supports it just fine
as well. 7z compresses a *lot* better then gzip/bzip/zip/etc...
Takes more memory and time to do the initial compression, but is fast
decompressing. I really doubt you would have any issues opening it,
on my Kubuntu install I just click to open it, ditto with my windows.
