LILO or GRUB
I am not an expert with either LILO or GRUB, but am more familiar with GRUB. I was only starting to learn the basics of LILO (since I switched to Slackware) and now I see 14.1 includes GRUB.
I think I will be better off knowing one really well and just avoiding the other than trying to learn both. Which do you think I should learn?
I don't want to invest in LILO if it is going be increasingly less popular and eventually go away, even if it is around for some time.
So far, I like Slackware better than other distro's I've used. If most Slackware systems continue to use LILO and GRUB is just a small concession to make things easier with those who want to use it, I'd rather learn LILO.
GRUB seems a little easier to work with if it is misconfigured, and that could just be my familiarity with it. otherwise both do their job well.
