Assuming that means why does ExeGNU "live" use wicd, reasons are wicd is 
DE-independent (ExeGNU also has a minimal XFCE), requires relatively few 
dependencies and actually works. Any required reconfiguration to suit an 
interface other than wlan0 should be quite minor. In an installation, 
you use what you choose.

RE firmware: ExeGNU is intended to support the Debian Free Software 
Guidelines (DFSG) .. If you need 
non-free firmware you must add it yourself, as documented by

Some other distros may have a less strict attitude towards closed-source 
(or even have corporate partnerships) and include such firmware.

Sorry for any inconveniece!
