Hold on thar, pardner. I don't "hate" LVM, but don't care for it. And in
most cases, or at least my own, and the person who is vehemently against

For that matter, haven't you ever gotten gunshy when something that's
billed as the LATESTGREATESTTHINGSINCESLICEDBREAD is buggy, and not ready

to be unappreciative of it? (We'll ignore my unhappiness at the whole
