This made me go "What?!". I used Lilo back in the day. Its user
interface was nothing but a prompt. You had to know what to type or
you'd be stuck.

Information for others like me who haven't seen Lilo since Grub came
along: Apparently development of Lilo continued until just five years
ago, and it grew a menu at some point. I guess that menu is the image
of user-friendliness that Johann was trying to invoke.

If I ever wanted to switch to another boot manager, I'd seriously like
us to consider rEFInd: https://www.rodsbooks.com/refind/

It's a very nice boot manager that looks good and doesn't suck. And
purportedly is somewhat (if not fully) compatible with bls.

sd-boot is too barebones and unfriendly to use, which makes sense
since it was designed for non-interactive machines and not humans to

If there is this general feel that sd-boots configuration syntax is much harder to read and the ability of not having to run additional command once the file has been edited or the ability to be able to easily maintain and manage multiple kernels or multiple operating systems due those being a drop-in configuration text files, is considered being too bare bone and *less* user-friendly than grub, then obviously me creating a change proposal based on what Javier suggested along with other cleanups to provide as best user experience as can be had with sd-boot would be doing the distribution a great disservice would it not?
