I am quite technical and in general prefer hacking text files rather than GUI
But I find Grub scary. Partly that I know that if I get it wrong I have a
nasty unbooting machine (does grup mean Get wRong and machins is UnBootable).
If find the file created by debian/ ubuntu really hard to understand. I am
not sure whether the issue is
- the file is complicated per se
- the version created by the installer is too general/ complex
I am not sure what the answer is but
- from my techy perspective I would like to take the file apart and
understand/ simplify it (on a machine that doesnt matter too much if I loose
it for a day!)
- from a more general perspective some form of GUI would be a good idea.
A parallel - the oreilly book on apache security suggests that you throw away
the all singing / dancing config generated by whatever distribution you have
and construct one you understand.
