I used it a couple of times to fix my linux-box and, in general, my pc. It’s the swift knife of every good admin. The only “fault” of it? The project is growing only on x86: PPC is sucking.

p.s. I want to highlight to you the most important features in this release, for me: the usage of GParted, better of any other partitioning tool on linux, and the driver NTFS3G.
