I've found that labeling my disk partitions

in the /etc/fstab file seems to be much easier
for my own small brain to comprehend.
If you want to use labels, it seems a lot more clear
to use LABEL= rather than /dev/disk/by-label/
I am aware of the LABEL= keyword for the disk labels
in the /etc/fstab file and would agree that
their use would be slightly more concise
and save a few key strokes.
However, in my own mind not necessarily more clear
as /dev/disk/by-label shows me exactly
what sort of label is being referenced
and provides a reminder that I can check them
via ls -Ahl /dev/disk/by-label .
Well, if you checked them using blkid, they'd say "LABEL=", so this
seems somewhat circular. :)
