I agree it is scary, by which I mean that you got to play with it carefully.
Having said that, I find LVM a step (generation) above normal partitioning
It can give lot of flexibility provided that is planned properly and in
In many cases I find users (not anyone particular), let's call 'click
and here I mean to say that people have taken it for granted that LVM will
