"Fast forward 30 *years* and Windows Explorer has finally got "native" support for reading/writing ZIP files."

30 years, what? XP was the first Windows version with native support. In 2001.

Before XP, I remember using Magic Folders for a native experience on WinNT and Win9x. ZIP files were usable like any other directory, even on a command line you could cd into them and manipulate files with MF doing all the background work.
