To be fair 95% of the people out there only ever deal with a simple eth0
with one ip and ifconfig/route is what they have learned and that is
perfectly sufficient for that use-case.

Having said that I did bite the bullet and just forced myself to use "ip"
instead and after a week I preferred it over the other commands so ifconfig
and friends really just stick around because old habits die hard.
