What is the best GUI partitioning tool for Ubuntu?

Does fdisk in an xterm count? –  Kyle Brandt Jul 29 '10 at 1:12
@Kyle Doesn't support GPT, but I'd say cfdisk is pretty good otherwise - straight fdisk isn't really a gui :) –  Andrew Jul 29 '10 at 2:06

Gparted is nice, and included by default on Ubuntu. Lets you do just about everything you should need.
My bad, it isn't included by default on my install of 10.04, I thought it was. It IS however, in the repos. Gparted also has a liveCD in case you need to resize your root partition or something like that.

Kparted is extremely nice, but requires installation of the KDE libraries.
