Who cares?

Being a Linux (and part-time Mac) user I guess I just don't see the point in drive letters anymore. I always laugh to myself when one of my Windows friends starts talking about his D drive, lol.

Nowadays I just give my drives a descriptive label. "Black drive", "250gb", WD My Book"

You feel smug because of a drive identification scheme being different to the one you use?

I think you need to reassess your priorities.
