Re: [usability test] Need feedback on LVM & RAID task diagrams

Thanks for the feedback guys! I made the changes you suggested except I 
called the devices underneath "disks" instead of "drives" - since it'll 
be a VM, I think they are called "virtual disks" so I thought using the 
"disk" terminology might be more familiar. Does that make sense, or do 
you still think "drive" is better?

Let me know what you think, you can shift-reload for the new version:

You mean making all the sizes of everything bigger? The only thing is 
by default, virt-manager doesn't do dynamic growing by default, so it's 
one more thing you have to worry about when resetting the test for new 
participants - and to delete the old VM's storage is another additional 
click you have to remember - so I just want to make sure the test goes 
as smoothly as possible and that there's no unintentional complications 
that the usability tests will have to deal with.

Are there specific issues you think might crop up with the smaller 
sizes that wouldn't crop up with a larger? The only one I know of is 
that BTRFS has problems with really small disk sizes like this, but 
we're not doing any BTRFS scenarios in the test.
