 > 'unzip' is not always available, whereas 'tar -xvf *.tar.gz' is usually
 much more universal.

 Gzip which is common nearly every *nix machine i've come accross handles
 Zip's fine.

 I commonly use tar -zxf *.zip to extract zips.

 I think most modern compiles of tar even automatically workout the
 compression format in use, which would result in your command working on
 zips too.
