If you don't like wicd, you can use another service that provides
'networking': there are 'dhcp-client-service' and
'static-networking-service' services for this purpose. So if you want
to remove wicd and to use dhcp service instead, you can do it like this:
(remove (lambda (service)
(or (eq? (service-kind service)
(@@ (gnu services networking)
(eq? (service-kind service)

Actually 'avahi-service-type' is exported¹, so you can use it instead of
(@@ (gnu services avahi) avahi-service-type).

Just in case you didn't know: (use-service-modules desktop) is exactly
the same as (use-modules (gnu services desktop))
So you can use:
(use-service-modules desktop avahi networking)
instead of specifying (gnu services avahi) and (gnu services networking)
in 'use-modules', if you like it.
