Well, the freeware version is, but if you have DropStuff or the
commercial StuffIt products, these will uncompress just about
everything, including .gz, .tar, .bz2... The problem, of course, is
that between platforms, you must make sure file transfers occur via
binary mode.

But if you don't know what's in the tar, you should probably e-mail
the person who's distributing it.
