We have no disagreement that learning LVM is useful for people who want
to maintain servers.  However, I'm subscribed to the LVM general
discussion mailing list and I see an astonishing number and variety of
mistakes people make with LVM; most of the time they lose a lot of data.
 This tells me that LVM is not yet mature enough for people who do not
wish to be system administrators.
