            Never bothered, since it was working fine until I upgraded to Kubuntu 12.10beta. That installed GRUB2 and made a mess, but I didn't have time to look into it yet.

              And your system uses uefi? You mean it updated from grub 1.99 to 2.00 i think?

                  Ubuntu only displays the menu if you have multiple operating systems. It's no different then how it used to be.

                  The switch from GRUB to GRUB2 happened with Ubuntu 9.10. The difference between 1.99 and 2.00 is a few bug fixes, features and that is is now no longer considered beta.

                    GRUB has been slow to load for me since around 10.04, and only in Ubuntu and derivatives. It's speedy for every other distro. You wouldn't think that a bootloader would need lots of distro-specific patches but it seems like they must add them.
