For todays huge hard disks, LVM is a must!

Features. Resize file-systems on the fly, have no limitations to partitions count, no thoughts about static partiton sizes any more, dynamically add new physical devices to the volume group, share a volume over many physical disks ... lvm runs for its own in a single static old-style partition on each used physical disk.
<offtopic>
ZFS is the best in this case (similiar to lvm+raid). But not tested, there is afaik no native kernel support yet.

Sorry, but I do not want to copy-paste pages of documentation here, it is not the right place.

And I don't need all these features on my desktop because I need only a root and a home partition :mrgreen:

You want to say you never had run out of space? And then copy all stuff over to a new drive ...
