It's funny you know. First you disagree with the SCPM concept and then you gave every reason that is needed. Internet is a funny place.
Hello!!! DHCP is not the solution to world hunger or poverty. Actually it has limited uses. Most of the times you need to have static IP's in a business environment. Hell!! It's not even useful in my home network, because I do a lot of Port-Forwarding in different PC's. The only times it is useful is when a friend comes by and wants to plug in his laptop. But for my work( and for many other people), SCPM is a life saver. And no, Knetworkmanager is not good enough either. It is a piece of shit actually. Let alone the fact it covers only network connections. So if someone would bother to read the article, he wouldn't mention it as an alternative. Sigh!!
