Even More Knoppix

The adoration continues. I hadn't realised until I read System recovery with Knoppix, that Knoppix comes with QTParted.

This is a robust, open source, partition manager. The free software equivalent of Partition Magic. I've been looking for something like this for a while. It seems that every time I buy a new machine I have to buy a new version of partition magic, because the current copy I have won't work with the new operating system or file systems that it uses. With this kind of planned obsolescence I end up spending quite a bit, well not any longer.

Knoppix has a somewhat old QTParted. I've found SystemRescueCD always have the latest stable and enhanced one at Its author also contributes to QTParted and very responsive, friendly.
