Most users will never even know that the boot loader exists, much less
interact with it.  That said, from the screenshots, it looks very powerful
and flexible, but not particularly easy to use.

Furthermore, it does not seem to be able to install itself to a hard disk,
and so it isn't a suitable alternative to GRUB anyway.
