I agree too that Windows should not be a special case. However, I'll
prefer uncompressed files on all platforms (except perhaps those that
are too constrained.) It is true that we can use zgrep instead of grep
and other text-searching tools have switches for supporting compressed
files, but having to use those is an inconvenience anyway and just solve
the text-searching task.
