    As far as I know, Oracle is not the copyright holder of GRUB.

    LUKS2 headers? ZFS encryption?

    that doesn't matter, from a clean slate using btrfs with zstd compression across the board, grub can have read errors. it's been a while since I've read the technical details, but it's something like one or two files grub depends on under /boot, grub can't read them if zstd compresses them a certain way. the workarounds were either to use chatter to keep specific files under /boot uncompressible or to set compression on all the top level directories one at a time except for /boot.

    How can you forget F2SS support, Michael?! :-)

    I was hoping to see more LVM2 and ZFS support. If one uses either Grub or ZFS with Grub, it sucks being limited to LVM1 for /boot encryption.

    It really really sucks having to keep /boot on a separate drive or partition because Grub doesn't support all of the encryption schemes that the OS/kernel/volume managers/filesystems support.

    It's just damn annoying when setting up and administering systems since /boot has to be treated differently than everything else regardless of one's preferred filesystem encryption scheme...unless one wants to LVM1 everything...a bit misleading to leave that out.

    Now I suspect all the anti-ZFS GRUB stuff comes from that big red Oracle logo on the Grub slides.

    GRUB EFI runs incredibly slow on ARM. Hope they spend some time optimizing it because it takes around 10 seconds to load GRUB's menu.
