GPT is an alternate disk partition table scheme that solves two issues associated with the MBR partition table scheme. It allows the configuration of more than four primary partitions, the maximum supported by MBR, and it also supports disk partitions of more than 2 TB.
Chakra, an Arch Linux-based distribution, is the only Linux distribution reviewed on this site that has out-of-the-box support for GPT, the GUID Partition Table. The only other distribution reviewed here with the same feature is PC-BSD (only available on release snapshots of PC-BSD 9).
