The Unarchiver… so much better…

How substandard can a expect build-in applications to be when using the default system utilities wrapped with an operating system… having switched to Mac recently for my laptop needs, I begin to experience some of the more intricate aspects of the default installation package… e.g. is the ArchiveUtility more inept than a potatoepeeler for southpaws in unarchiving ZIP files…

Thank’s to John Olson and Steven Heintz for getting me along with such a simple thing…
…see they pointed me to The Unarchiver, which without making a big fuzz about it just unzips my files when I ask it to do it and then goes right back to sleep, just the way I like my utilities to behave.
