Is this a good idea? Laptop supports UEFI and GPT, so number of partitions is not a problem for me.

I basically want the LVM (logical volume management) to be a playground for whatever Linux distros I throw in it. Expand and shrink them as needed.

Anyone familiar with this?

Honestly, I'd just do btrfs subvols. Faster and easier than lvm

That was my setup. Works just fine.

Because I like to use my hardware natively with Linux?
