I was just reading how Debian will be including this here (http://linux.slashdot.org/linux/07/09/13/1427241.shtml).

Will the win32-loader (http://people.debian.org/%7Ermh/d-i/win32-loader/autorun/after.ogg) be included in Gutsy?

That means grub is not replacing the Windows MBRs? Kinda like that Wubi utility?
We shoulnd't depend on the NTFS ( FAT32 I wont even mention ) to have something as crucial as boot sequence, those get corrupted in 2 seconds and turn pcs into giant paperweights for normal users.

Is it a false report that Debian will be using it?
