I agree--though I know the RH way better, because I use it more, I think
Debian does networking better.  (In my case, though, I'll admit this is
subjective. Maybe because I use RH systems more, they break more for me.  
(Though, as an example, an update this week, if one has or had docker
installed, broke ssh on non standard ports if one has SELinux in enforcing
mode. But that's the sort of thing I probably wouldn't come across in
Debian, because I don't use it that much and by the time I ran an update on
some VM or seldom used laptop with Debian, it would have been fixed.
