    In the spirit of open source software, the author of "Easy 7-zip" took an app that hadn't been updated in 3 years (7-zip), and added features that they thought made it better. More options are a good thing.

    By the time 7-Zip is out of Alpha and Beta my beard will be long and grey.

    Maybe if big companies like for instance nVidia which uses 7zSFX for their driver packages for several years, donated some money to Mr. Pavlov, development would be much faster.

    I stopped using 7-zip and went with Bandizip, not looking back.
