I'm pretty sure the standard version would rapidly fall into disuse.

But, they have that feature already. It's the way network interfaces
have started for a decade.  Why bother with NM at all when starting the

Not everyone. I like it. And the latest NM can be configured to connect
on boot.

There is a checkbox for start on boot, note that as of the current version March 10th, it doesn't work, although the most recent update may have addressed that. There was discussion about anaconda and NM not playing well, perhaps someone finally looked into it.

From memory: unless there is an explicit "ONBOOT=yes" the NIC defaults to no. That may be a simplification, I set my wlan0 checkbox to boot at startup and it doesn't.
