First, I already pointed out a thread discussing how "NetworkManager" is completely impotent to even recognize very common USB network adapters, while WiCD can. That's not "my" opinion, it is a FACT. I actually tested that myself, just out of curiosity. And if you bothered to look it up, you would find plenty of threads discussing "NetworkManager"'s bugs.
Second, you completely ignore the discussion above, proving "NetworkManager" is BUGGY and cannot even hold a stable wireless connection. Again, that's a FACT, not an opinion.
Third, the only fact you have to say is that "networkManager" happens to work for YOU. I guess you are lucky enough not to have a USB wireless adapter, or even more lucky to own a USB wireless adapter without a RealTek chipset inside (or a very old USB adapter, which happens to work with "NetworkManager" crap).
But I forgot, if "NetworkManager" cannot detect USB adapters based on the RealTek chipsets (extremely common in the market, by the way) then it's RealTek's mistake. If "NetworkManager" cannot even hold a stable wireless connection then it is MY fault, not "NetworkManger"'s.
I am sorry, but you are completely wrong here.
