I've been a Slackware user for years before definitely moving to CentOS
in April 2017. Those Slackware years have conveyed a deep sense of the
KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) principle. I just remove stuff I have no
use for, for a variety of reasons.

For example, I usually remove firewalld on a fresh installation, since I
prefer a good old iptables script.

But then, I'll just go with the flow and adapt, and if Red Hat decides I
have to use NetworkManager to configure a DHCP desktop client, so be it.
