No, I think yours one is better, because it's OS independent.  I can
suggest the following, which basically the same but will save you a few
byte on your HDD/SSD:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(setq custom-file (locate-user-emacs-file "custom.el"))
(load-file custom-file)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
