I heard that WinZip is already "in place" on Windows XP Professional and Windows XP Embedded. Is that true? It wasn't on the version that I bought for home (I had to pay for the license), but someone said it comes with XP already. I didn't think even a shareware version came packaged with XP Pro / Embedded.

It is not Win-Zip. It is Windows File Compression. Here is where you can read up on this.

I would recommend if you purchase a compression application that you use Win-Rar.

I agree with LeviDaily, win-rar is far superior to winzip
Also I couldn't find anything about winzip in xp embedded so I would say they used the windows file compression there as well.
