windows zip programs won't be able to read a linux gzipped program. there are differences between the two. if you could read anything made for linux in windows, what would be the point of having two different OS's.
a pdf file is a pdf file.. a gzip file is usually created for unzipping in linux or unix.. don't know of any programs that would unzip it in windows. i don't think winzip does it by default if that is what your trying it with.
