Linux The GNU/Linux operating system is blessed to have sound partition management tools like GParted which are very easy to use. However, when it comes to the management of 'virtual partitions' known as volumes, things are quite different. There is Linux Volume Management, or LVM for short, however it can only really be used from the command line.

there have been a lot of articles lately bitching about when things go wrong for one person. (Linux Live Journal Syndrome?)

i can understand that there are problems just waiting to happen. i enjoy causing myself pain playing around like this but things are hardly a mess.

will autocad install in a VM? i don't see why it wouldn't. that would have saved the effort when your partition scheme isn't what you need.

and since when does something have to be in a repo to be usable? compiling LVM from source isn't a killer and running zfs for two 80 gb drives seems like overkill.

im starting to wonder if the writer was grasping for geek cred, had it blow up in his face and blames linux for it rather then consider the silliness of what he was trying to do...
