Is that supported by surveys/counts?  
On HP-UX, we use LVM with HFS, but never VxFS,
because the partition changing tools are free with LVM but are  
separate charged products for VxFS.

Additionally, check the bug reports...VxFS is fraught with problems
compare to HFS.  So, at this point, with problems and cost, we're 
staying on HFS.   The majority of customers we deal with are also
on HFS, for the same reasons.

It used to, but that was dropped (as of 11.0?).
