Grub2 ist highy complex, terribly slow to configure, it almost has no
documentation, it's a nightmare to customize, and occasionally it doesn't work
without giving good diagnostics (all based on openSUSE 13 experience)

Systemd is also hightly complex (call it "big'n'fat", despite of extra
dependencies), it's incompatible with init scripts and most importantly, it did
not speed up any system on boot (only shutdown was somewhat faster, leaving the
impression that it did not perform all required steps).
