Okay, I'll bite..  What do you dislike about NetworkManager?  Except for
the fact that one first-run you need to configure it via the UI, once
it's configured you can set it up to auto-connect at boot time.  You can
still set up a static network config the way you did before, and indeed
you can specify that NM not control an interface.
