This made me go "What?!". I used Lilo back in the day. Its user
interface was nothing but a prompt. You had to know what to type or
you'd be stuck.
Information for others like me who haven't seen Lilo since Grub came
along: Apparently development of Lilo continued until just five years
ago, and it grew a menu at some point. I guess that menu is the image
of user-friendliness that Johann was trying to invoke.
What I was referring to was that systemd uses split configuration text
files which can easily be copy or edited like lilo.conf was but OK.
