Have you ever wanted to resize a disk in a VM and wondered how insanely painful that would be? After all, from the old days of platter-based spinning drives in computers (sorry to those of you still living in those days), before SANs with resizable LUNs, file-backed VMs, and other marvels of recent times, disks didn’t magically resize themselves unless it was to get smaller because they were breaking/broken.

When one thinks of market leaders in a space, it often comes down to economics or units shipped. While important, it does not always tell the full story. Market leadership can (and in my opinion should) be defined in terms of thought leadership and actions.  This definitely should be the case in the Linux space …
