    Good, NetworkManager is always the first package I setup on a new Pi install.

      But why is NetworkManager not the default choice on Raspberry Pi OS?

        The blog post says it's experimental for now and will become default in later versions.

          For desktop usage, Ubuntu is the best choice.

              Does Ubuntu on Pi have snaps too? If so I would disagree with your suggestion.

                I bought a PI400. Even overclocked, it is so slow I can't use it. Just typing into mouse pad it doesn't keep up with my typing. And trying to follow the mouse makes me nauseous. I don't know how anyone can use these for a desktop. I just stuck it in the bottom drawer, but I keep wondering why I haven't tossed it in the trash.

                  I would argue that ubuntu is never the best choice unless its the only viable choice, in which case its not

                    That is how "modern software" works.
                    The standard linux DE stack is just too bloated.
                    Some of the DE components are even written in python
                    Even the "light" DEs are slow and bloated. The "light" mostly indicates features.

                    Performance wise you can turn a normal desktop computer into a RPI by running python
                    So running python on a RPI turns it into ???
