Re: gzip bzip2
And your answer is by no means correct.
The "x" is "eXtract" command signifier while the "z" that Brian is
familiar with is the option signifier for gZip/gunZip compression /
de-compression. The "j" signifies for Bzip2 compression / de-compression.

This is by no means a Cygwin question, by the way :\
