    And also it'd be completely incorrect. It should be said instead:

"ifconfig is deprecated on Debian Linux, please use ip instead"

since ip is Linux-only tool if someone of you don't know and all other
Unix-like OS still use ifconfig as main tool and on any Unix I ever had
some account command like 'ifconfig -a' is de-facto standard one. World
doesn't consist only of Debian Linux you know. :)

    And BTW, ip command is harder to use and it rather should be in the
category 'admin tool' than in the 'user tool'.

    With best wishes.
