Well, since I need at times to reformat drives due to problems, I prefer to use a reliable and OS-independant program. Also, due to the limited native support for NTFS in Mac OS X [haven't checked macOS yet], I occasionally need to format/partition external drives of larger capacity such as 120GB, 250GB and 500GB to FAT32 which GPARTED does just fine. Additionally, being on a CD-R that can't be changed any infections on a target drive will not carry over.
Fair enough. For most of us though, in a lot of situations, it's likely overkill. I have simple needs so I would only resort to it if my usual method didn't work. It would be my backup plan.
