 +
 +  * Depends of installation the tray icon starts automatically.
 +  * After install if no right gui was installed (wicd/gtk or wicd-kde) the GUI usage will be a pain.
 +  * Wireless network does not autoselect unless user marked as connected automatically.

 +Very poor if no manual tips are done, but with some tune its a good choice for networking and experts: 
 + 
 +  * Package does not start automatically after session enters if no mayor desktop are in choose by user, some irritating behavior. 
 +  * After install if no right gui was installed (connman-ui or cmst) the GUI usage will be pain
 +  * No network its autoselect unless user doit manuallyand wors, the gui need mantain push the righ button to select.

 +Only recomended for users without experience and guindoser/​winbuntu,​ experts will prefers wicd or connman:

 +  * Depends of many many packages, so u must have a modern computer due frew space and few services running background.  
 +  * Related packages will need that are not installed ​and only marked as recommended. 
 +  * After install, all works as spectek only if all the needed packages are installed, see lasted section in this page for.
