The dust of the Red Hat RHEL incident has settled. A few days ago, Red Hat executive Christian Schaller said that they are recruiting full-time developers to enhance the Linux bootloader experience for Fedora and RHEL.
GRUB and the Linux boot loader generally don’t get a lot of attention and are more of a “just use it” kind of thing, with most Linux distributions preferring to hide the GRUB menu.
