Please don't worry, it's going to be for more than just "the moment".

I have found the program Lzip from Antonio Diaz at lzip.nongnu.org, but this is 
not a Windows program.
Somebody has made a port to Windows 32-bits 6 years ago. But does this work on 
my 64-bits Windows 10?

I don't know why it wouldn't. If it doesn't work please let us know. Also, you can find a more-recent version of lzip, built for Microsoft Windows, here:


Perhaps the lzip web page should mention this next to where it mentions the older Windows32 port, as that might have helped you find this alternative. I'll CC: this message to bug-lzip to ask its maintainer about this.

do we get a decent application program with a graphical user interface

You mean, like the other tools we're using? Like 'tar', 'make', and 'cc'? :-)
