Linux users have used
fdisk for as long as can be remembered to partition their hard disks. However, as large hard disks have become more and more prevalent,
fdisk can no longer be used because it has a 2 TB partition limit. Luckily,
parted has been around for a long time and can be used to label and partition any modern sized hard disk.
