Was wondering if anyone knew about using winzip especially since they introduced the .zipx format. I'm not keen on winzip in the first place but I'd like to be able to extract .zipx when I need to.

You could try wine.

I assume, since no one has followed up, that this question still looms. What I had to do to solve this issue was install WinZip on my Winders XP virtual and put the stuff to be extracted into a folder accessible from the virtual.

I had no luck with Wine...

Hope this helps, but more I hope stupid software companies can stick to open standards and even more that stupid users will start using the free / better stuff like 7zip.
