grub2 has problems.

Why are you still using it?

Because it is the future, and I expect they will remove grub 1 eventually.

My desktop machine has grub 1. My laptop as well, but it runs 11.4.
My ancient laptop has grub 2, and so do my auxiliary installs, and my vmplayer machines.

I have more than a dozen 12.3 installations. None have Grub2 installed. All have Grub (Legacy) installed. Default selections cannot be optimal for everyone.

Optimal is one thing. Workable is another.

I suppose they only tested grub2 with a high resolution, wide screen display, there it is perfect. On lower spect machines, it is pretty bad. Fine as long as you only use the default boot, problematic otherwise.
