A simple bootloader manager (as a part of Google Summer of code), to choose the order of the operating systems, customize the appearence and some settings, accessed in Gnome Control Center.


There is no tool in Ubuntu that make that configuration easier for novices and Non-English users.

Use Cases


This will be developed in Python and PyGTK/Glade so it can be easily ported to another distribution that use Gnome and Gnome Control Center The application is separated in a frontend and a backend part.

Design & Implementation


There is already a tool available that does most of this: StartUp manager. It could be extended to do all of it.
