"Even if you where to cut the kernel down to just what you needed, it would still outweigh GRUB by about a few hundred megabytes!"

Huh????? And where do you get your information from?

Damn Small Linux (DSL) is only 50 MB. A Linux boot loader could be even smaller, if you cut out all the unnecessary stuff.

I find it extremely suspicious that these allegations regarding ESX were released the day before VMWare's Initial Public Offering (IPO). It's nothing more than a blatant attempt to manipulate the stock price. Talk about FUD!
