While you launch and use winzip I can type 5 times "tar zxvf" (or
"unzip") on my xterm (with the command completion, of course).
In fact, there are GUIs for gzip and tar on Unix, for example,
KArchiver. But very few use them once they learn to do "tar zxvf". Its
Force a Unix lover to use Windows... the first thing he probably does is

Force a Windows lover to use a (even with the GUI tools) Unix... after a short
time he probably will be using the magic "tar zxvf" anyway.
And I see that constantly on my job, were we have Windows NT and Linux
