Most certainly not.

When we were students, some OSes/file systems (notably: an IBM mainframe we ran a big project on) required you to manage disk space explicitly: You had to reserve the amount the file would require, as one contiguous chunk on the physical disk. (Certainly, we had been working on other systems with automatic disk space management for more than three years, and refused to believe it when this IBM guy gave us a lesson in how to create a file, but it was true!)

I am too young to myself have experience with setting up a job mix where one job would use the CPU while another job did I/O, but a couple of my older textbook discusses this. However, we have had automated CPU management for several decennies.

Even communication has gone from static swithed lines to statistical multiplexing, where every user is automatically allocated capacity according to needs.

So memory management is certainly not the only area for automatic management.
