LVM can be very handy for desktops. If you run out of space on / (or any other mount that uses LVM) you can attach another disk, add it to LVM, and expand the filesystem with resize2fs. Easy and quick.
Before I bought my present computer about 1 year ago, I had 2 8GB drives given by a friend and... I used only one. All / was on a 4GB partition and I didn't run out of space. Now, that I have a 19GB root partition on a 680 GB drive -- nowadays you get 1TB for less than $100! -- , I install this and that on every whim and
/dev/sdaX 19G 7.7G 11G 43% /
So, I'd rather not bother with fancy stuff like LVM.
