The latest mockups for the partitioner contain an BarGraph with
additional features:
* legend
* several areas with same color/legend
* a bit small (maybe not so important)

Stano, if we need it it is of course M. Let me know, I just have no
business reasons, this is entirely an engineering decision.

What's wrong with using the _existing_ widget with its existing

Agreement is that this is not needed.

Can we please re-consider this for openSUSE 11.2 ? Some visualization
of used/free space ratio on the disk/partition, or the whole disk
layout in the partitioner overviews would be nice.
The problem (not the only one) with current bar graph widget is that if
some portion of the graph becomes too small, the text on it is no
longer readable. A legend of the graph (as depicted above) would help a
lot, but at the very minimum, some tooltips over the graph parts could
be added

It looks still like an engineering decsion. Stano please re-consider or
reject ;-)

I don't understand why this should be an engineering decision. This
feature will directly influence what the users see. It's not a detail
hidden deep in source code that makes geeks say "wow" if they should
find it while being bored to death.
This is a feature users are constantly asking for!

Persoanlly I used a LiveCD of Parted Parted (Gpartitioner) before
installing OpenSUSE everytime. It is much easier to do it this way when
setting up a dual booting computer.I really think if it had a better
GUI for partitions it would make this partitioning easier for people to
understand, especially people giving Linux a try.-Marc

I agree. We should be leaders in innovation NOT followers. It's about
time we start setting an example on how things are to be done in Linux.
SuSE and openSUSE have been around  a long time.
