I know that the net-tools package is deprecated and that its features are supposedly provided by the iproute2 package.
However, I find that I keep using the old net-tools programs: it's an old habit. I want to get rid of this, and I think that uninstalling the net-tools package could help.
apt-get remove -s net-tools shows that the only other package to be removed would be "ubuntu-minimal", which is OK for me. I wonder if everything would keep working and if any change to system and applications network settings would then be needed.
What would be the consequences of uninstalling the net-tools package in a default Ubuntu system?
