Managing wireless connections seamlessly with wicd

Thank you - Thank you - Thank you.

Months of the debating of the WPA/WPA2 security in Linux between drivers and wpa_Supplicant configurations...this has taken all the long processes away. Extremely painless and extra easy. I have tons of notes written with hundreds of steps drilled down for different configurations/drivers, but ...click->install->configure->connect...cuts down on processes. While the normal geek will do all the steps I "used" to do...the average joe can now get wireless working right away. This application would definitely be a great asset to the "newbie" linux guy, although geeky way is the way to go so that in turn you can learn more about what Linux is about, but for me...this is one extra step that makes it faster to bypass all long step setups and can concentrate on other distros. I vote for definite top application to get. Awesome.
