It is probably the release noted that bothered me not you document
but I was annoyed that once again fdisk which is a superior
partitioning produce (in terms of simplicity of use) is be
deprecated. Especially once one installs th linux I assume disk druid
still goes away and fdisk is what you need to use.

In the same sense lilo to me is somewhat much more straight forward than
grub I am saddened at its demise. 

Maybe this is like the emacs vs vi argument. If you understand emacs
it is easy to use but the learning curve to get to use it is very
steep.

I am sorry if this all was discussed to death in the beta discussion
which this time I did not get involved with.
