I have never had a problem with network manager after the Ubuntu 7.10
release. No problems in Debian; no problems in Ubuntu. I am not sure why
there is so much hate against it. Maybe I am that lucky user for this
package. ;-)

Still, I have never heard of wicd and I have to admit it looks pretty
good. There are certainly a few options that I wish network-manager had.
Do you use it? Or did you just stumble across it? I am contemplating
installing it on my dev box when I get home...

Thanks for the suggestion!
