From that article:

"Now, far be it for me to judge, but 7-Zip was first released in 1999 and has been a leading and popular archive tool for many years. I would hazard a guess that anyone who isn’t aware of 7-Zip by now would probably not even know what an archive tool was, or has maybe been living in a cave somewhere. Desperate times call for desperate measures."

Typical, typical, I'm an engineer so everyone should know what a bridge is and how to build one.

Nice to get a mention but the dismissive way the majority of PC users are referred to is as I said... typical.

7Zip gets a new article here because it is just as relevant today as it was back in 1999. As far as I can see, it is nothing to do with the writer's proposition that there is a lack of innovation in free software.
