Why do we still have cameras that shoot film? Or that use a pentaprism? Why do people still own record players??
Lossless means lossless. And it works, and it has been used for dozens of years in all types of data transfer. Do you even want to KNOW how much lossless data compression is happening on your internet connection right now?
I understand the concept may be foreign to those not well versed in computer data structures, but when something is using lossless compression, it really is lossless.
And despite the previous posts allusion to data corruption, this is what checksums are for. It's what allows for self healing correction to take place
