Or an absolutely horrible UI, no helper for vpns, auto-reconnection not
working after a connection loss (works at boot, fortunately), randomly
taking 30 seconds to shutdown, and not able to connect to WPA

And this is not just years-old hearsay, like most complains about NM,
it's first-hand experience with the package currently in

I could file bugs, but I have so many problems that I'm better off
switching to NM.
