PeaZip

If you are looking for a file-archiver that is open-source, supports a wide variety of archiving formats and has a graphical interface in both Linux and Windows, look no further than PeaZip.

PeaZip is currently a free product. However, do take note that it does advertise other third party products during the installation process. A sample of this would be the below screen. The product mentioned PC Speed Up is a commercial product. The only redemption is that you can opt not to install the product.

There are no advertisements after the product is installed (the installation prompt for installing the third party product only appears during the installation process). But if you are the paranoid type, stay away from this product and stay with 7-Zip.
