Because you can find it preinstalled on every linux installation
that uses a file system. The smallest linux installation I can imagine
has only two executable files, beside the bootloader. It is the
linux kernel and busybox. Busybox is a tool collection and it contains
fdisk and dd. From time to time it pays to know the basics.

Off course, but you would learn fast, because you would know
why it happened, because it is not covered by a colorful GUI ;).
