    The first boot loader I used was LILO on a Xandros install and it almost made me give up Linux forever. I had nothing but trouble. I was dual booting XP and Xandros and about ever third time I started the computer it would not boot.

    At that time I had no idea what to do. I know dual boot Debian and Ubuntu, no Windows. I also can fix things myself is my computer won’t boot. Grub also is in my humble opinion light years better than LILO.

      I once tried LILO for learning purposes but i faced a lot of difficulty using it just as you have expressed here. GRUB works just fine for me now and it offers modern features and components. Importantly, many thanks for offering us your thoughts and encounter with LILO, and GRUB.

    I used to use Burg and loved its capability to present multiple looks and feels. It apparently hasn’t been updated in years and I honestly it should be presented here without that caveat.
