Re: Which bootloader to choose?

Glad you like u-boot!  Hopefully my feedback below is a bit more
constructive--- and quantitative.

I like Micromonitor's scripting language.  I always seem to get lost
in the seemingly-inconsistent, quasi-environment-variable way that you
tell u-boot what to do.  Could be merely an education problem.

I also like the small code base of Micromonitor, and the consistency
of the coding style.  Makes it easier to find my way around when

I'm probably not as familiar as I should be with u-boot, so I wouldn't
consider this to be an exhaustive review.  And I won't dismiss the
possibility that Micromonitor has its share of warts.
