GNU GRUB FAQ
Because GRUB Legacy has become unmaintainable, due to messy code and design failures. We received many feature requests, and extended GRUB beyond the original scope, without redesigning the framework. This resulted in the state that it was impossible to extend GRUB any further without rethinking everything from the ground.
It is quite usable, but we are still making incompatible changes from time to time. The current release is working on Intel/AMD PCs, OpenFirmware-based PowerPC machines (PowerMac and Pegasos), EFI-based PC (IntelMac) and coreboot (formerly, LinuxBIOS), and is being ported to UltraSparc.
