Editorial This article describes some of my annoyances in computing. If you had any problems reading this article, then skip this one. It will only be a waste of your time. There are a lot of annoying things in the wonderful world of computing. Of course, nothing is perfect, but that doesn't mean we are not allowed to complain and scream and throw our keyboards at our monitors when yet another irritation pops up.

I see a bootloader as two main things.
- A menu to choose your partitions
- A small program to start your system

A cool solution would be to include the first part in the bios. Btw some bioses allready give you a boot menu (F8 key), but only for devices.
This menu would scan for the bootable partitions and build a menu from it. There would also be reverse boot informations from the partitions in case you have more than one boot option per partitions (different kernels or windows versions)

What do you think ?
