Rar has a better compression scheme.

I dont use .zip compression unless I am sending a file to someone who does not use WinRar.

Even then, I advise them to get WinRar.

Well; windows XP has easy open features for ZIP

I think RAR has better compression; and I find it cooler for some reason; why I don't know.

Probably was because I had to deal with Winzip for such a long time :p

Rar,

It would be an obvious choice due to the compression factor, and it opens winzip as well, when needed.

I may actually be insane.

I think rar is becoming more of a standard now-days than zip is.
People realise that its better compresion (and admitedly, a funkier app :p ) works to their advantage.
