Just wondering how I would go about unzipping a .zip file on a Linux box. I know you can untar tarballs etc but is there a standard command for .zip files. This would seriously improve the quality of my life!

Actually I suppose another way of solving the problem is how can I create tarred files on Windows?

Sure! It's called (wait for it!) "unzip". It may well be already installed - if not, it is probably in your distribution's package system, or you can download the source [info-zip.org] and compile it yourself.

How did they come up with a name like that?

Also, you can make .tar, .tar.gz, .tar.bz2, and other types of files with the free/open-source 7-zip [7-zip.org].
