RTFM - when you don't say "nofail" it's ecpected to be crucial

your entry says it's crucial

That in turn raises the question why the default should be different

because earlier systems (sysvinit) hat no concept like emergency mode
as they where a lousy bunch of scripts where you ended in case of a
crucial disk failing in a undefined state?

because earlier systems had no concept for "nofail" or "fail" at all

Yes, they did.  Boot would fail if a device in fstab was set to mount on
boot (option "noauto" absent) and it was not present during boot.

This is precisely why nofail is the default.

that's nonsesne just because common sense

when "nofail" would be the default "nofail" would be useless at all and you would need a "afil" option - isn't that crystal clear?

Sergei is right.  RTFM

which one?

"man fstab" says clearly "don't report errrors if the device does not exist" which clearly implies "report errors when nofail is missing" and what should happen when something repots and erorr is pretty clear defined these days
