I generally use the tar.gz files because they're smaller than zip archives.

Generally i use the zip files,but sometimes i use the tar.gz voted for zip


Thanks for all the feedback all.  I did mean the install/upgrade/update packages and have edited the first post to clarify that.

As for why I'm asking:  I'm looking at redoing the download page.  One thing I noticed is that we present a lot of choices to the users instead of just making it simple with the option of being complex.  Before I made a decision on it (one way or the other) I wanted to get some data.

At this time I don't know of any plans to add or remove any archive types.


Friendly little bump.  Thanks for all those that have voted.


What problems have you been seeing with the zips?
