Description Andrew Nagy 2004-11-10 20:13:00 UTC
Many distros are beginning to include qtparted in their installers to
allow for NTFS resizing.  I think this would be a great addition to
help get windows users to use linux since there would be no side-effects.

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2004-11-10 21:05:08 UTC
a) qtparted brings in a whole new set of toolkits, languages, etc into
the installer which isn't feasible.
b) adding ntfs resizing support can't be done for the same reasons as
why we can't ship the NTFS module in a kernel.
