Burg is a brand-new boot loader based on GRUB. It uses a new object format which allows it to be built in a wider range of OS, including Linux/Windows/OSX/Solaris/FreeBSD, etc. It also has a highly configurable menu system which works in both text and graphic mode.

I have written a tutorial about decorate grub 2 boot loader using Burg, and that’s in CLI. Now Burg-Manager, a GUI front-end for Burg has been released by IngAlex & Canopus0003 & Tux10.
