    There are many reasons I prefer Linux. Near the top of the list is that I’m a tweaker. Someone who enjoys making changes and having things “My Way”, like the song by Frank Sinatra. Linux has many configuration files, most of which “lurk” in the “/etc” folder. These files are used to configure the mounting of drives, network lists like what IP address goes with what computer name, passwords and admin access, application configuration and even what the boot menu looks like. “Under the Hood” Linux is highly customizable.

    grub2 actually is something crappy as creating scripts inside /grub.d/ can't be done easier by new linux converts.
    unlike the original GRUB that's easier to customize and has the option to protect from editing kernel lines when a malicious user circumvents through single user mode.
