Uncompressing files

I use MS Windows at work (not proud of it), and I use Winzip for compressing my files, most recent version includes a newest compression level... I read bzip2 and I though I will be able to uncompress it from my Linux box...WRONG! They use a another algorithm based on the LZMA compression, however, I figure it out after trying the first time:

$ unzip filename.zip

skipping need PK compat. v4.6 (can do v2.1)

Then:

$ sudo apt-get install p7zip

Do the trick

7z e -y filename.zip

And done ;-)
