Frankly, I find statements about how bad this is going to look and laying
the blame at the feet of Fedora rather offensive.   Go complain to 
Microsoft who charged you money for the privilege of not supporting
dual boot with Linux.

The thing that is most offensive is when people say... "ohhh this looks so bad" 
like that's supposed to inspire fear in the developers who will then rush in with
a fix.   Trying to make people feel bad about how FC2 "will look" in the eyes of
somebody is pathetic.   Fedora doesn't owe you or them anything.

People who report bugs DON'T get flamed.   People who make statements 
about how horrible the world is because of the FREE software they're running, DO.

Instead of saying things about how bad this is going to _look_ you could have spent 
some time installing other versions of Grub to figure out when the problem
was introduced.   Then you could have HELPED the developer solve the problem
faster.
