- Someone said "virtual" to a Unix kernel hacker
- and the hacker said "let all disks be virtual, and thus managed by
software instead of hardware"....
- ..."this way we can grow them and divide them and multiply them without
direct relation to hardware".
- "and we can also name names, and find them more easily"
- Then someone else said "If they are virtual, we could also make virtual
copies, thus making data restore life easier".
- Thus LVM was conceived.
