I never use labels because if I want to attach a drive to another computer for some reason it's extremely common for the labels to collide.

Good point. Labels are not as unique as UUIDs. But you can choose labels which are unique enough to avoid collisions, for instance by including a substring which identifies the host system or the drive. See Felix's example above.

You can, but it isn't the default. UUIDs tend to just work to a greater extend.

What default ?
