Are you asking about the "eth0 vs enp3s0 udev" issue?
The common name for many distro's defaults already is enp3s0 instead of
eth0. There is a config or udev rule where you only have to edit one
value to get back eth0 instead of enp3s0. Until you don't have tons of
scripts using eth0, you should consider to use the not that new common
naming pattern instead of the outdated eth0.
