    PBZIP2 is a parallel implementation of the bzip2 block-sorting file compressor that uses pthreads and achieves near-linear speedup on SMP machines.
    The output of this version is fully compatible with bzip2 v1.0.2 or newer
    (ie: anything compressed with pbzip2 can be decompressed with bzip2).

    has anyone seen this running under windows ? maybe with cygwin ?

    it sounds interesting, but i dont see any benchmarks (CORE 2 DUO ??)

    best regards
