Yup, as mentioned above, winrar
can open and unpack such files as .tar.gz , .tar.bz2 , .tgz , .tbz , .tbz2 , etc
. Don't know if you want to run linux binaries on windoze, that requires a lot of effort and emulation.
Also I wanted to clear out that those kind of compressed files
are older than linux itself, as they were introduced on UNIX and were meant for backups on magnetic tapes.
