I will list that as a flaw in my character, since I have no reason to doubt that parted is just as effective and powerful as its counterparts.
Unfortunately there’s not much I can show about parted in action, lest I scramble my hard drive so badly as to require Clonezilla to repair it.
And while I like you all, I’m not ready for that kind of commitment. 😛
As far as how parted compares to fdisk, or for that matter to cfdisk, I don’t see much that differs. The man pages suggest they both are capable of manipulating or creating partitions. Obviously they both have their own styles.
So I leave it to you to decide which you prefer. The fact that you have a choice at all is what matters.
