after agreeing with you many times, that our partitioning module needs some facelift, I have created some mockups how this could look like:
Overall it looks like a definite improvement.
- Delete partition: the user needs to set the size of the partition on 0
I think that's rather strange. So you have to set slider to 0 > apply > then "start over". How about you can right click partitions in the overview above and "delete partition" is one of the context menu options.
Another thing, I think one of the most common tasks done with the partitioner on already installed systems is setting a mount point for existing partitions. Therefore I don't think it's a good idea to have the mount-point-thingy in the "manual partitioning" section. Maybe "set mount point" could be an option in the above suggested context menu.
Also I think it might be nice if the partitioner could automagically create folders if you enter a mount point which doesn't exist.
