Not really, Redhat/Centos has a lot to offer, but for me, networking is 
a one-time configuration, and the best way to configure it is using 
something that falls within this principle:


I'm not flaming NetworkManager, I'm just stating that for many (perhaps 
most), it is over-engineered for a server orientated distribution. I can 
run with the script above on 30 server instances, and it doesn't, as 
yet, break any of the other features of Centos that I enjoy.
