        As long as they don't sound like "whrrrr-clank-click-click-click-click" I agree!

            It's funny to me that for so many years this program has been my rock, and it hasn't even been at 1.0.

            Developers have such different ideas about what "1.0" means.

              Last I checked, the GParted Live image couldn't boot from UEFI, which is why I always use a Ubuntu desktop image as a replacement (which comes with GParted on the live image). Will that be changed in the future?

                gparted was the only one that could read/show the partition table from a truncated GPT disk image. Neither fdisk or cfdisk could cope with that. gparted saved my day.

                  It doesn't come with ntfs-3g either, which makes it borderline useless. You'd expect a GParted live system to have robust support for file systems (needed for things like resizing partitions), but it doesn't. It's still a nice debian-based live image that can be turned into a pretty useful system if you feel like it. I haven't looked into how they set it up, but it boots up pretty quickly.

                    You checked a long time ago them. I've been using the gparted live image for at least 5 years in UEFI mode. It might not be Secure Boot signed though, I haven't really had an opportunity to test that yet.

                    gparted has come with ntfs-3g since 2012 at least, I'm fairly sure, and I've used it to resize NTFS partitions since at least 2015.
