Hm. What's the reason for being inconsistent here?

If changing the partition naming scheme, I would have thought it'd
become hd1,1. But why is the first disk 0 and the first partition 1?

Using Linux style names might make sense as well... hda1,...

It was already discussed plenty of times and the answer is that with BIOS it's impossible to guess the linux's names, so it would just confuse the users
