I propose to modify the expert partitioner, say what you think of these changes:

I think the "Overview" and "Used devices" tabs associated with each
drive are out of place, I think they should become the property window
of the drive, that can be accessed by right-clicking the drive and
selecting the new item "Properties", or in the "Hard disk" view
by selecting it and clicking the new button "Properties" , or by
right-clicking an empty space in the drive's own view and selecting
Properties, or by clicking the new button "Drive properties" in the
drive's own view.

About partitions, I'd completely remove them from the tree on the left
and move those informations to the partition's Properties window,
accessible from right-clicking the partition and selecting the new item
"Properties" or selecting the partition and clicking the new
"Properties" button, both in the drive view and in the "Hard disks"

In computers with not too many HDs, say max 6, I'd show all the
graphical bars in the "Hard disk" view.

I have also filed these as a wish:

Thanks for reading,
Marco Poletti
