      Just switched to this instead of wpa_supplicant on my Arch laptop.

      No issues so far and the Arch Wiki page for IWD is getting better by the minute (which is quite useful seeing as iwmon and iwctl don't have man pages or a --help flag yet).

        iwmon has a manpage if you have asciidoc installed and explicitly enable docs with --enable-docs, and it has --help, sadly both are pretty useless in telling what it does and overall documentation has been the biggest annoyance.

        they have /etc/iwd/main.conf (that i found by reading error messages) and no documentation i could find about what can be put there.

          Hmm, just tried it on my Arch laptop and `iwctl` repeatedly disconnected from dbus after trying to list known networks (when I haven't yet added any, so probably just an edge case) and `iwd` crashed ("corrupted size vs. prev_size" after get-networks) on the second try trying to connect to my home (WPA2 PSK) network (first try just failed). For now, back to NetworkManager :/
