Parent article: Fedora and LVM
Having multiple partitions or LVs in desktop/mobile Linux is one of those things that people often do for historical or traditional reasons while having no real practical value. At best it is just a waste of a few moments during install, at worst you find yourself having to resize things later on.
Now if your having a server setup then there is good reasons for it, but you are not going to be u sing the defaults anyways. So whether or not LVM is on by default is really of little impact.
