It's just fine for managing wireless connections on a laptop or for
connecting to a wire network where DHCP provides the addresses.  It
needs some work to be a universal tool for network connectivity, but
that's underway.  I've encountered a few irritating little bugs, but the
only showstopper was a driver problem that prevented connection to a
network with a hidden SSID.
