It can save 20-30% of our collection space since we are all dealing only with JPEGs most of the time. Its specifications did not changed for a long time (if at all) while most of the other JPEG compression formats did. I think it is a great fit for the hobby. Currently, to the best of my knowledge, Honeyview is the only viewer that supports it, but I would rather use CR.

Just adding some more info from a open source tool developer that reverse engineered ZipX and added some errata to the document linked above.
code.google.com/p/theunarchiver/wiki/WinZipJpegErrata

As said, he coded a working opensource tool to decompress zipx, so maybe we could get some partial support (like the RAR files).

I am not fond of proprietary formats myself but the payoff here is too great to miss.
