After over 16 years, OSDisc.com has closed. I started OSDisc to spread Linux and help new users get started. But providing DVDs today has little effect on the spread of Linux. I regularly see small distros that provide
tens of thousands of downloads, but few if any DVDs are provided by OSDisc. The vast majority of Linux users are downloading Linux themselves. And that's a great thing to see.
What we've accomplished:
Shipped over 300,000 discs and USB drives
Helped over 110,000 users get started with Linux
Answered over 25,000 tech support tickets
Given back over $200,000 to the open source community
Thank you to everyone for making OSDisc possible for the past 16 years.

GParted is the Gnome Partition Editor application. It is an industrial-strength package for creating, destroying, resizing, checking and copying partitions, and the file systems on them. This is useful for creating space for new operating systems, reorganizing disk usage, copying data residing on hard disks and mirroring one partition with another (disk imaging).
GParted enables you to easily manage your disk partitions:
Create partition tables, (e.g., msdos or gpt)
Create, move, copy, resize, check, label, set new UUID, and delete partitions
Enable and disable partition flags, (e.g., boot or hidden)
Align partitions to mebibyte (MiB) or traditional cylinder boundaries
Attempt data rescue from lost partitions
GParted works with the following storage devices:
Hard disk drives (e.g., SATA, IDE, and SCSI)
Flash memory devices, such as USB memory sticks and Solid State Drives (SSD's)
RAID Devices (hardware RAID, motherboard BIOS RAID, and Linux software RAID)
All sector sizes (e.g., devices with 512, 1024, 2048, 4096 byte sectors and more)
