Perhaps you're right, perhaps you're wrong with this claim. At least
network-manager is no reason to switch to another distro, I installed
Ubuntu from the 15.10 server install media and selected what I wanted
to install and what not. Later I run a release upgrade to 16.04 and
network-manager is not installed, just the dev package is installed:

$ sudo systemd-nspawn -q dpkg -l network-manager*
[snip]
un  network-manage <none>       <none>       (no description available)
ii  network-manage 1.2.0-0ubunt amd64        network management framework (dev
un  network-manage <none>       <none>       (no description available)
$ sudo systemd-nspawn -q dpkg -l network-manager-dev
[snip]
ii  network-manage 1.2.0-0ubunt amd64        network management framework (dev

There could be valid reasons to chose another distro, but IMO
network-manager is no reason to do so.

Regards,
Ralf
