WinRAR: The file compression/de-compression tool of choice for Linux!

Every time that i try and extract a large file using the built in file archiving utility in Ubuntu, it crashes.  Every time.  By large file, I mean anything >= 1gb.  I know that this is no fault of my machine, as this happens on every machine I use.  To solve the problem, I run trusty WinRAR under Wine on my Linux box.  It’s honestly faster than anything I’ve used yet on linux (aside from command line stuff).

If you have any suggestions, I welcome them.
