      7zip has better compression and decompression (best speed / efficiency)

      By all other measures WinRAR is better, its comfy
      Also WinRAR is not far away from 7zip performance.

    Notice how these are all things you have to hunt down and install yourself. Linux distributions come with sane, useful defaults and you can install different ones if you want without googling

      If we don't count the fact that Linux doesn't have any sane standards, then yes.
      Otherwise, it doesn't matter what software is included in your distro of choice.
      When you need to actually do things on your computer, you begin to realize that Linux is incapable of doing that.
      So I'll prefer to hunt down all that software myself, while being able to work without hiccups or compromises of any sort.
      Linux will never be ready for the desktop.
      P.S: enjoy your X11/Wayland situation.

          Listen, moron, if I'll actually start to provide you examples of how software developers can't guarantee stability on Linux distributions because of differences between them; or how there no standards to implement some functionality that needs to depend on the said standards, you'll start to cry.
          The truths is: Windows/MacOS do have standards. Linux don't. So as long as software works better on Win/Mac, I'll stick to them, thanks.

            Login under X11 session.
            Run Minecraft. Load SEUS PTGI shaders.
            Play and eventually witness complete system hanging. Reboot your PC and come back here to admit you was wrong.

            I'm aware about this, but, I'm not going to install Linux just to post a proof. And that doesn't make me denied of any rights to state something. The world is not black and white. Else, you can see how easy and wonderful this is for Linux users if no one can accuse them of their beloved OS failures because no one is going to use it. Again, easy and wonderful to just simply ignore all the issues in blind fanaticism while denying experience of those who fled back to Win/Man for a their good reason.
            I'm not even asking any of Linux users here to install Renoise and go here to understand why software works better on Win/Mac by seeing this example: https://forum.renoise.com/t/i-made-a-script-for-linux-renoise-users-that-lets-you-play-notes-with-pc-keyboard-while-focused-on-a-plugin-window/60758
            Every DE is different and Linux as a whole doesn't have any standard Renoise devs could've used to implement functionality that works on Win/Mac. And that's why any sane person will prefer to use anything but Linux.

            linux stability is impeccable if the hardware is in good working order, so gotta agree there. also windows has always been the OS of idiots, but even their bluescreens now treat you as if youre a fricking moron. frowny faces? no useful dump info? nothing says 'your a fricking moron and cant understand this anyway' like ":( oh noes! your peecee is broky woky!"

    Modern Windows? Yes, mostly.
    Deadshitos? Not at all (in this case even loonix is actually better).

    If the thread was about productivity software then (modern) Windows would be obviously superior here.But the software that OP mentions is really basic and you probably wont see too big difference between this and linux equivalents.

    None of this matters, linux software is perfectly fine and the only "windows" software that actually matters like Brave, qBittorrent, JDownloader2, Steam, Discord is available on Linux. The issue that silly billy STUPID FRICK linux monkeys have, is the fact that these moronic silly billy funny guys STILL haven't figured out text rendering. It's very silly when I use a shitty linux distro and see my screen become 10 times blurrier and harder to use compared to Windows.
