They serve similar purposes but its entirely up to user preference and/or requirements which one is used. They certainly aren't mutually exclusive or anything like that and pygrub is not going away upstream any time soon. > and that in Lenny (unless there's still pygrub in Squeeze, pygrub _is_ in squeeze: $ dpkg -S /usr/lib/xen-*/bin/pygrub xen-utils-4.0: /usr/lib/xen-4.0/bin/pygrub I haven't seen any suggestion, from Bastian or otherwise, that it will be removed.
