The solution to "My kernel update doesn't boot" should be "Automatically
detect that that happened, give the user that information and fall back
to the old kernel", not "Always show the user a menu that they almost
always don't care about". Solve the actual problem.

And so, I intend to wear those shoes proudly. While I don’t plan on
following in the footsteps of anyone (because, you know, that would be
walking in circles, which isn’t highly productive), I do aspire to step
with the same spirit that those before me have — honestly, transparently,
communicative-ly (new word!), with humor, and with care. And I aspire to
Get Stuff Done, sans red tape.
Anyhow, while I am looking forward to playing around with Debian Wheezy,
the current Debian testing branch, I can foresee Squeeze and my #! Statler
builds remaining on a couple of my boxes for a good while yet. IMHO, the
release still has plenty of legs left in it, even if some people consider
it only fit for servers. Troglodytes!
