Do you prefer 7zip (smallest), Rar (middle) or Zip (largest) format to download?

To give an idea, the XAMPP download for Beta8 is:
38,451 KB in 7Zip
76,003 KB in Rar
94,561 KB in Zip

Just Open-AudIT itself is obviously smaller, like:
4,616 KB in 7Zip
6,767 KB in Rar
7,438 KB in Zip

Does it matter? Do you even care?

I'm in the "Don't Care" camp but if I were you I'd not want to discourage potential new downloaders. I'm not sure if RAR or 7Zip would do that but they might.

I have no great preference

I vote plain old zip. Personally, I'm a GNU/Linux guy and I prefer 7zip on Windows. However, if the purpose is one package to cover it all (which is why XAMP has everything bundled) why add an extra step to install 7zip, WinRAR, etc?

(that's my logic anyway)

I have uploaded (code and XAMPP) in ZIP format only.
It's the largest format, but at least it's common to everyone.
