regarding network manager

I tried removing network manager with sudo apt-get remove 
network-manager, and the menu item under system->administration or 
system->preferences for configuring networking also disappeared.

This was on a fresh install of 8.10; can anyone confirm that GUI tools 
for network configuration are totally dependent on network-manager being 
installed? I removed it because of troubles getting a static network 
configuration to work.
