On Ubuntu-based systems, the udev rules have been **sticky** for some
time. Basically, at boot, a new udev rule based on seeing any new
NIC-MAC was created, so eth0, eth1, eth2, eth3 ... all were static - at
least since 10.04-ish.

Network config under debian/ubuntu is different from RHEL - that and
package management are the main differences I've noticed between these
