    I've been doing no-risk repartitioning (without losing data) without problems with some other software on the Mac, especially when I was making the Mac Linux-ready; I forgot the name, but I think it's been discussed here on MacRumors before.

    I'm sure this new FWB tool is to be a *LOT* more user-friendly, and that's a good thing. :)

    Ah, finally! Partition Magic is great on the PC, I hope this product is just as good on the Mac!

    wow only $20, not bad. Anyone tried this? i'd consider it since i move stuff around on my mac alot and sometimes need to change partition sizes.

    If its as good as partiton magic then i'm sold, that is such a great program.

    the site says it's only OS 9 at this point

    wonder if this would present any problems?

    people these days are looking for OS X utils, since there aren't too many good ones

    the soon to be released macs aren't supposed to be able to boot into 9

    that means we need native X utils
