    I was just reading how Debian will be including this here.

    Will the win32-loader 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?
