So, you wanna hear from people who're using LVM on Linux? 

Here, we are! Let's get rid of that damned partitioning fuzz. With LVM i
actually only need three 'partitions' on my boot-drive: root, swap and
my physical volume of lvm. I can create, increase, shrink and drop now
logical volumes just to test new filesystems (is there any gfs guy on
the list? I use Antimatter Ant with patch 3 on a lv and it works great
now!) or other new software. Another evident thing for me is, that i can
use Oracle8's autoextension without fear to fill my root!

So, give everybody his LVM !

Thanks for your great work
