I honestly can't remember why I used LVM in the first place, but Fedora using it by default probably influenced that decision.
I used to be in the "LVM is worthless confusing overhead for a desktop and even small servers" camp. Now that I have more experience with it after using it for years *because* Fedora made it the default, I have found its features useful a few times per year. However, I am still nervous that one day I will be unable to recover my data because LVM is too complicated and I won't know how to restore a non-booting system.
