You saw the story about compressing Office 2003 to 1MB, right?

Well, that was a hoax -- let me find the link: http://digg.com/tech_news/Compress_MS_O ... B_Archiver

The that i heared (somewhere here posted was that Vista installation DVD could fit on an 1.44MB floppy, but compressing/decompressing would take ages).

It would be faster to buy a single DVD.

I have tried this program and it really sucks 8-)

It takes about one minute to pack 1MB - and the rate is poor. I packed 30MB mp3 files to a 28MB archive. And I tried it with 3,4MB pictures which I packed to 3,1MB. Even WinZip has a better compression rate.....
