When I did a clean install of Karmic, it was the only OS on my hd, so I didn't even know there was a new Grub, until I saw a question on it in a forum.

I'm still not super-computer-savvy, so having learned how to edit the old Grub and using that lots, I wasn't happy to hear it had changed. I've avoided learning about it until today, when I clean-installed Karmic on my mom's computer, and needed to edit Grub to load the Windows partition manually.

Changing which partition to boot as well as timeout is easy, thankfully. And I really like that that you can set Grub to boot a specific partition, not just a number,* so updating kernels doesn't mess up booting.

I don't like that you can't set the menu to hidden when you have more than one OS installed - what's that all about?

I haven't figured out how to edit partition names in the menu (like, there are two Windows loaders according to the menu; would like to be able to differentiate more easily between the installer and thre OS proper), but I assume it's possible, too. That's for another day :o)


* Could you do this with the old Grub? I could've used it!
