Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"This release of Fedora includes a variety of features both over
and under the hood that show off the power and flexibility of the
advancing state of free software. Examples include:
* System Boot. Fedora 16 introduces GRUB2, the long-awaited
next-generation boot-loader for Linux. GRUB2 automatically
recognizes other operating systems, supports LVM2 and LUKS
partitions, and is more customizable than the previous version. In
this release, only x86 systems with a BIOS uses GRUB2 by default.
Work is ongoing for making GRUB2 the default for other
architectures and systems.
