    I've started using it when I noticed they added btrfs online resize support (also ext4 online grow and probably other online filesystem manipulation where possible), which is something I don't get with Gparted.

    Good stuff, good stuff.

      Strange, I think I remember adding btrfs online resize support when I noticed that GParted has it. In fact adding online resize support was basically as hard as removing checks that partition is unmounted. It's a very minor feature.

      Of course KPM has other features that GParted doesn't (like LUKS/LVM) and in some places GParted is ahead.

        Weird, then it was just a failure to find gparted documentation on my part + the Gparted shipped with OpenSUSE Leap 42.2 did not support that, or some other coincidence.

        Just checked, on OpenSUSE Tumbleweed I can online-resize with Gparted too. Oh well.

        I still like KDE partition manager more, lol.
