Re: [opensuse-factory] Add Edit Feature to Yast Boot Loader using Grub2 for 12.2

What's the killer feature of grub2 that's worth swallowing the bitter
pill of giving up sane yast support?

UEFI & installation to RAID are the ones I remember, but I think there's at least one other.

Even though Grub Legacy has had no upstream for years, it doesn't really need maintaining, and should be kept as first option for those who don't need features it doesn't support. I've been reading the Grub support list for years, and installing *buntu on occasion in part to see how it works, and often fails. I see a shameful parallel between Grub 2 and KDE 4.x. Grub 2 is a complicated mess that shouldn't be foisted upon those who don't need what Grub Legacy lacks, at least, not yet. Let's get past the similarly troublesome systemd-init conversion first at least.
