Good question.  Both Gnome Network Manager and wicd get the job done.  I
didn't realize that Xubuntu was taking a position on one or the other
because I am happy with whichever one shows up in my installation.

By the way, did anyone else notice the Debian "swirl" screen in the Beta
1 ISO (downloaded this morning USA time) after selecting to install
directly from USB/CD/DVD?  I don't mind.  I was just surprised.
