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

of user-friendliness that Johann was trying to invoke.
If I ever wanted to switch to another boot manager, I'd seriously like
us to consider rEFInd: https://www.rodsbooks.com/refind/
It's a very nice boot manager that looks good and doesn't suck. And
purportedly is somewhat (if not fully) compatible with bls.
sd-boot is too barebones and unfriendly to use, which makes sense
since it was designed for non-interactive machines and not humans to
