I started using LVM because I had a file server that I intended to grow
in the future. I now use LVM on all my systems because it allows me to
better fiddle with the partitions, even if I haven't found the need
yet. I also use it on my laptop because it allows me to do funky
LVM works for me and doesn't seem to have any downsides, so I'm sticking
with it. For a desktop system there isn't much of an upside either
though, so it probably boils down to a question of whether or not you
want to try something new.
