Parent article: GRUB 2.00 released
With the wishful thinking that it could just work properly every time regardless of filesystem and RAID if it had been done differently.
Except it can't. If you have dual-boot Linux/Windows system then often the only way to make the whole thing happy is to install Grub on Windows-provided NTFS partition and add it to Windows menu (search GRUB2DOS in Google for details). Now, this is obviously a PITA (why some versions of Windows kill MBR after each boot is good question) - but it works. You scheme will fall apart.
And it's not obvious to me that software RAID users outnumber dual-boot systems users.
