LILO – the venerable Linux Bootloader is ending its development. The news has been announced at its project’s page.
I’ve used LILO since the very first time I’m acquainted with GNU/Linux operating system, back in 2002. LILO simplicity makes it easy to install and reinstall the bootloader using standard computer BIOS at the time.
However, guess time has changed, with multitude of the server environment which linux computer may have been deployed, LILO probably has caught up with its limitation.
Still, I could still see LILO can be useful within embedded computing environment.
