Description: "The Parted Magic project is proud to announce another stable release of the popular partitioning and system rescue environment. Since the last release many new improvements and updates have taking place. Parted Magic now supports booting from EFI BIOS. The kernel has been upgraded to Linux 3.7.9 with fixes for the bug bricking Samsung laptops using EFI and the samsung-laptop module. It's safe to use EFI and Parted Magic in this release. The chntpw utility has been added to the boot menu once again. A new kernel command line option 'wicd' allows easy switch between NetworkManager and wicd."
Keywords: Debian-based Linux-3.7.9 EFI-BIOS

Pros: fast, low resources needed, loaded, small download, bugs reported get fixed, excellent for USB distro
Cons: grub2 recovery

superb collection of recovery tools.
A very usable OS on its own.
Bugs that are reported get fixed, how novel (winks at LinuxMint)
