"Ethernet NICs embedded on the motherboard will be named em[1234]
rather than ethX. PCI add-in card NICs will be named
pci<slot>p<port>_<vf>. "

I had no idea until right now there was any plan to stop calling the
primary nic eth0, and start using something else that know one will
recognise, and will make a whole bunch of tutorials, scripts and other
programs stop working.
One assumes this will eventually happen not just on Fedora ?

I assume everyone else must be better informed than myself ?
