[arch-general] Why there is no NetworkManager in ArchISO

It's not *widely* accepted but just integrated with
GNOME. Though NetworkManager makes the
configuration of network an easier work, especially
when it comes to desktop use, some features like
network binding and monitor mode will be made

When it comes to ArchISO, wired network will be set up
automatically. If you use wireless network, tools like
wifi-menu and netctl are available, which has made
things much more easier. I'd suggest you read the
network configuration page on ArchWiki, which may
help you understand network configuration on Linux-
based operation systems better.

Why is there no NetworkManager in ArchISO? Isn't it widely accepted as
the go to method of connecting to internet in Linux? Is there any reason
for it not to be default?
