I continue to use LILO because simpler and more mature code is good, especially in the boot code path. I used GRUB for a short while but when I saw it fail to boot from one start to another (without any OS changes) I ended that experiment. I also wasn't impressed by the GRUB2 code quality and tendency to become a mini-OS, trendy as that is. I don't use eclean-kernel, but FWIW I think there is clear value in supporting the LILO-style approach with explicit installation/configuration of the bootloader in advance. //Peter
