7-Zip is licensed under GNU LGPL, and the *.7z format has support across all major operating systems. There should be no trouble opening the archives under any operating system, and no need to deal with messages bugging you to register or pay for the app. Source code can be found here. See More
I’ve been using 7-Zip for a while now. It’s fast, free, and efficient. What else could you want? See More
Eric Turner's Experience
literally the best human (not machine) compression tool. the dev also started building generic linux binaries so the same level of 7zip is also available in lin. what i mean by human is it doesnt require too much rtfm to actually use. the cli is also pretty straightforward (which is a must in lin, no gui) the syntax is a bit weird tho, but doesnt everything has its quirks?

Not as fast as 7zip to begin compression or extraction. But PeaZip allows for archiving each file/folder to its own archive without using the cmd line which 7zip still doesn't have (this feature can also be found on Bandizip which is also good). Also allows users to set up WinRAR as a custom archiver that bypasses the annoying WinRAR popup (this feature is not found on Bandizip). PeaZip wins on features. Just is a bit slower to kick-off.
