Now that PartionMagic seems to have died, I was wondering, what do you guys think is the best Partition Software?

For what operating system/architecture? – Chopper3 Jun 10 '10 at 15:36
I guess for each one? Right now I have Fedora and Windows 7 dual booted. – Cenoc Jun 10 '10 at 15:41

GNU Parted. Or if you want a nice GUI, GParted. A live/bootable CD image is available from the GParted folks. I've used these products many, many times in the past to create/extend/shrink/etc partitions both in Windows and linux systems, and have never had issues with data corruption. Usual caveats apply, though, for partition resize operations.
