Agreed kinda bad example on my behalf since I based it on real live 
scenario in which I had been approached by a not so experienced Linux 
user which actually had formatting and partition his external drive as 
LVM ( and was having trouble with it ) and when I asked why he choose to 
format and partition with LVM he said and I quote " I just took look at 
how it was setup on my desktop so I decided to create the same since I 
expected it would just work if I plugged it to another Linux box I had 
setup at home".

I'll have it in mind next time I mention a simple test case that it 
should be targeted against mixed OS environments instead of having it 
solely focusing on easy of use and interoperability between Linux
