Grub is WAY more flexible and friendly, and doesn't go broken on
upgrades just because you forget to run that stupid lilo command to
update the block map.

I have certainly had more problems with lilo than grub in my time of
using both.  I prefer grub for sure.

lilo has nothing to offer that grub doesn't have (it used to, but not
any more).
