LVM is functional for enterprise environments but awful for the
home or office cases.
Define "awful". I make use of it all the time on home and office
desktops and even my notebook computer. It makes it easy to reassign
disk space from purpose A to purpose B (it would be easier if there was
a way to shrink a mounted ext3/ext4 FS, but that's a hard problem).
Logical volumes for virtual machines perform better (and virtualization
is something becoming more common on the desktop for compatibility).

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
