Linux The tools used to boot Linux are changing. Specifically, the Grand Unified Bootloader is now officially in maintenance mode only, and GRUB's developers have abandoned the original GRUB in favor of an entirely rewritten package, known as GRUB 2. Discover GRUB 2's new capabilities and how to use it.

Grub2 is a disaster

My experiences with Grub2:

I needed to add a boot parameter to fix a power management issue on my laptop, but after two multi-hour sessions of trying, I failed.

Absolutely ridiculous system. It's "just" a bootloader. Should be nowhere near as complicated as this.

Or at least there should be two modes, simple and fully featured.
