In computers using multiple OSes, Grub displays a list
with the titles of each Kernel available, maybe separated
by some fake title. The recovery mode and the memtest
are essentially not used, neither are old kernels that
are kept installed after some kernel update. The menu can be manually organized, but Kernel updates usually mess up the organization.
@Shady3D: I don't know if that's true, but I would like that (it would speed up boot time on dual boot setups) and it could still be combined with on of the solutions above.
I would like OS groups (solution 1).
Solution 2 is allready possible, but I would like an easy GUI to select the order (solution 2) instead of manually editing some files and having a message pop up on every kernel update about overwriting your edited files.
There are also some slightly related ideas floating around brainstorm that want to get a "restart to ", which would also increase productivity of dual boot setups.
I would say that solution #4 (or #1) seems the best choice. When I first booted Ubuntu, I was definitely confused as to which choice was the correct one. Plus, if one wants to boot Windows or whatever, they shouldn't have to scroll through a five- or six-item list to get to what they want. The graphical option certainly helps with those who have even more OS's on their computer. *Thumbs-up*
