QTParted Redux.

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on May 20, 2006 11:39 PM
So, way back in 2004 <a href="http://qtparted.sourceforge.net/" title="sourceforge.net">QTParted achieved stable release.</a sourceforge.net> At that time GParted "burst" onto the scene <a href="http://qtparted.sourceforge.net/screenshots.en.html" title="sourceforge.net">looking exactly like QTParted.</a sourceforge.net> Two years later GParted makes news by releasing a live distro version.

But, QTParted has been available in a live distro for years. It has been part of the infamous, <a href="http://www.knopper.net/knoppix/index-en.html" title="knopper.net">Knoppix</a knopper.net> live CD for quite some time. A live CD, I might add, that offers far far greater functionality than simply repartitioning disks.

I can't see the advantage of carrying yet another live CD when I already have Knoppix and QTParted!
