Today on Bits Du Jour. $15 down from $30. A Chinese company that is often on Giveaway of the Day, apparently one of the better ones (GAOTD is uneven). If the product is good I would prefer to simply Bite it from Du Jour. It has not been easy to determine the expertise of the company.
The website in general, and for this product, looks professional.http://www.partition-tool.com/

Any thoughts ? I saw there may be a 2005 Paragon Partition Manager that might be a freebie alternative. And all sorts of techie alternatives, which would be nice to learn, but even if I techify I would like to use one friendly GUI alternative as well. If this is the most modern, GUI, solid, inexpensive-ware product, better than any freewares, then the $15 is attractive.
Anybody have any experience with this one ? I am unconcerned about Vista, the main idea is to set up Linux partitions on an existing Windows XP puter, and/or have software that works below the XP interface and works with the partitions. My understanding, minimal, is that partition philosophy is a bit different when the system starts with XP and works from XP and when it starts directly on the lower puter level. Perhaps a good product can work either way consistently ?
