If the Finder type of unzipping was enough, "Winzip" guys would be out of business. Yes, win32 has "zip folders" functionality too. It was a excellent 3rd party zip utility until MS acquired them. What did it do? Well, similar to Stuffit AVR but much more integrated to UI. You really saw "ZIP" files as folders. MS acquired, stripped down that easy functionality and made it pathetic part of OS.
I also notice OS X built in zip uses only single CPU , as far as I tested. I got 4 here, majority of Mac users have 2.
