For which definition of "system"? My systems typically contain 20 or more 
partitions, of which 6 or more are /boot or / partitions on which Grub has 
been installed, and all of which (except on Mac) contain DOS 
compatible/legacy MBR code. I definitely don't need the additional complexity 
that putting Grub2 on any of them would produce. It's bad enough is nearly 8 years old with 
no action.
