How many ways are there to configure an interface?

Hi all,

How many ways are currently in place to manage network configurations?

At one point, it was the scripts in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts. Add in some /etc/udev magic and we had a real solid solution.

Then there is Network-Manager and its nmcli pal.

Now there is a network config and device control under systemd.

Whats the best practice for network configuration (Static, static DHCP, Dynamic, Wlan, etc) for usage on Fedora? Then for DHCP options,there are so many!

Is there some way to pick one way or another?

Thanks!
