Re: Grub vs LILO

Sorry for stepping in at this point, but this is really amazing. I've
counted 20 postings with the subject lilo vs grub. When posting
recently to the mandrake list I did get _two_ replies( relevant ones
though), and earlier on fewer than that (with the same subject). What
do you think of the number of replies from RH lists (in general, not
necessarily with this subject)?

I have computers running RH/Rawhide, MDK/cooker, Debian/unstable and
am rather happy with the situation though.  (You get feeling for the
flavor of different spices).

Still, even if Mandrake, RedHat, SuSe, .. (thank you all) etc have
great distributions and contribute a lot to the community and Free
software development, in my opinion Debian is the best (including the
very responsive people following the mailing lists, and apt-get of
course ...).

Later on hopefully the HURD will gain in maturity and interest, a lot
is happening already, see eg. http://kt.linuxcare.com/debian-hurd/latest.epl
Then we'll have a true GNU system, as envisioned out by RMS _many_ years
ago :-) (No flames please, they are being directed to /dev/null)

Seriously, maybe it's time to introduce the inclusion of grub to
debian woody/unstable :)
