Context depends on where you are speaking from..... Certain things you say in the Northern US will get a laugh. Same things here in the Eastern mountains will get you shot. And the same things here in the South will get you hanged and your family hunted down so your line stops procreating......

question is why would I, on my single server with a single instance, using a SAN for my storage, bother with ASM? Why do all of this overhead just for a single instance?
Single server, Windows, going to 11g without any prior patching knowledge for that release? In your situation, I'd say you'd have to have rocks in your head to go with ASM... Regardless of anyone calling you a "dinossaur".
Before I get abused: I CLEARLY AND EXPLICITLY said "in your situation". There is such a thing as CONTEXT in the English language!
