Because many home networks do have a working DHCP server (typically the 
internet modem/router) it makes sense to have this as a *default* 
configuration. It just works for so many users.

I'm using as static network right now, as I'm sure many other 
debian-user readers do. It is a basic functionality of every software 
designed to manage your network, including Network Manager.

In order to switch to static one has to figure out:

 1. How is networking configured on this particular device

    If you can't figure it out ask the ones providing the 
    device/software. In case of Raspbian / Armbian it is *not* Debian 
    (the clue is in the name).

 2. What is the *correct* method to alter its configuration

   This is usually quite straightforward once you figured out 1.

Kind regards,
