Why are they skipping up to version 9 I wonder?

Interesting. I thought the next version would be 5.0, not 9. Perhaps Igor figured that since he added a bunch of new support for archive formats and such, that each format constitutes a new major version number. :D Time to load up my XP VM and give this a try.

Don't worry, most thing humans do doesn't make sense anyway. :D

I think both are cool. I like WinRAR's interface, but 7-zip's compatibility.

I think it's non-free, not open source and not supports as many formats as 7-zip (wim, vhd etc). That's enought.

After reading through the forums, I saw the reasoning behind the version number. Probably a good idea, since 7zip has been at version 4.x for about 3 years now.

It's interesting to see features that no other archiver supports at the moment - mainly the ability to open filesystem files as archives, which only things like imdisk and WinImage support. I'm interested in seeing where this is going.
