Re: [opensuse] How to partitioning in unallocated disk space
Adam Tauno Williams said the following on 12/05/2011 06:30 AM:

I see "partitioning in unallocated" and think "Ugh, they didn't use LVM"
and I move on.


I'm frustrated that LVM is *not* default default. There is no reason it
shouldn't be, it would avoid a lot of monkey-labor that using crappy old
'partitioning' causes. EVERY OTHER OS USES LVM BY DEFAULT!


Once you've moved a file-system, effortlessly, from one disk [physical
volume] to another, replaced the disk, and moved your data back
again.... Yep, you get a very superior attitude towards those that don't
use LVM. And you are entirely justified.

+1 smug :-)

Our institutions and values are in jeopardy as the mores of the
market pervade all social life in this country. Loyalty, honesty,
courage, discipline, patriotism, and commitment to family are being
crowded out by the goals and rules of economic rationality -- do
whatever makes the most money.
