A file called "rt.jar" took several seconds to decompress, meaning that it was HUGE. The file called "game.jar" took longer than most files but much less than a second.

You care about this because it means that the game's code takes up less space than a supporting program's code.

we are well aware that the JVM takes up a significant portion of the installer size.
