> So you quoted the paragraph that informs about one trivial disadvantage (the need to type "ifconfig" once to find out the name of the interface) while ignoring all the important stuff, such as consistent interface naming across reboots. Seriously, whom are you trying to shit here?
Imo the problem is not to have to type ifconfig once, but having to type it all the time. I am completely unashamed to admit that I cannot remember such generated names.
The earlier approach of generating stable ethX style interface name imo worked well enough and generated easier to remember names.
I don't understand why you feel the need to react with that amount of hyperbole. It only reinforces stupid anti-systemd stereotypes.
