Oh, we've had our moments. You don't even have to go very far back in
the archives to read some. :(
But I think, on the whole, we all prefer a nicer, friendlier atmosphere,
and we do try to keep it there.

I think that the prevailing attitude here is rather anti GRUB2. Mostly
because development on it seems to focus on items perceived as useless
and bloat for a boot loader.
That being said, it does have the advantage of being a boot loader that
could boot all 3 archs, x86, x86_64 and PowerPC. What I had in mind for
our boot loader section was to list a number of boot loaders (maybe for
now grub-legacy, lilo, grub2 & yaboot) and list the architectures which
could make use of them.
