Fast Technology, May 26th, at this week's Build 2023 conferenceMicrosoft announced that Windows 11 will natively support mainstream compressed file formats such as rar and 7z.。
Subsequently, some netizens exclaimed that there is no need to buy genuine paid WinRAR in the future.
With regard to this matter, Louise Cusworth, a member of the sales team of win.rar GmbH, a German company behind WinRAR, generously responded to media concerns.
Cusworth representsFirst of all, I feel honored. Microsoft's decision will make rar more familiar and convenient for those who are not familiar with using WinRAR software.
Secondly, we will of course be worried. After all, Microsoft is a software giant, and we are only a small company, and rar is not the private property of WinRAR, but we still hope that people will support small companies like us to make WinRAR better.
In addition, Cusworth also confirmed that Windows 11's support for rar format is limited to decompression and cannot directly create rar packages.
Finally, Cusworth pointed out that WinRAR 6.22 beta has just been released, and there will be a major upgrade to the software before the end of the year. Please wait and see.
Data show that the rar compression algorithm was invented by Russian engineer Eugene Roshal 30 years ago, and he developed WinRAR software 2 years later.
