Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I still can't understand. That's not the way I see it.
All the partitions that existed previously to the creation of the new one have their numbers intact. The last partition, that's the one he created between sda6 and sda7 has the higher number, the rest of the partitions have been untouched, what's the problem?
To word it another way: all the partitions have exactly the same name they had before, just look at the lists. And the new one have been assigned the next available name (sda11). So, what is what you think that changed? I can't see anything that changed. If you look at the starting points of each partition in both lists, you will see that all the partitions that existed before do exist now and they have the same exact name. That's not my definition of change. If sda11 had been given the name of sda7 shifting the rest of partitions to the right, now that would have been "change" for me.
If you ask me, this does no harm, and it helps because you don't have to re-arrange your fstab, or even your grub or lilo config files, depending on your layout.
