Clinging desperately to sinking ships

I was chatting to a friend (and long-time Windows supporter) on MSN earlier today - he was looking for a utility to extract .RAR archives on Windows. I thought there was an obvious (and easily obtainable) option - but, apparently not so much.

Identities have been changed to protect the stubborn.

I never did get a satisfactory answer to that question...

Don't get me wrong, I'm not dissing Windows - I'm pro-Vista and a Windows user myself (amongst a plethora of other operating systems) - but sometimes it pays to be OS-agnostic. If my install of Windows played up as much as my acquaintances' apparently does, I'd switch to Ubuntu in a flash.
