The worst thing — this is the one aspect of 9.10 that is really bugging me so far — is that it now takes twice as long (some 12 seconds or so, compared with 5 or 6 for the old GRUB) to actually get to the GRUB menu when booting up. Any decrease in boot time (as in from GRUB to besktop) that they are touting is completely negated by the increase in time it takes to get to the GRUB menu in the first place. This is the one thing I'd really like to see fixed.
Running 9.10 Final Release and is running well. Boot is working great. I am looking forward to Mint 8. I can't wait to see how they improve upon this great release of Ubuntu.

Same here! I am running Kubuntu 9.10 and it is running problem free. Clem has started internally testing Mint 8 and I am really anxious to test it out when he feels it is ready. I know there are a lot of improvements to look forward to.
I will wait for PCLOS 2010 (KDE4) and Mint 8 (KDE) ofcourse....in meantime living with Kubuntu is no punishment at all

The guide looks pretty complete and it is written to be easy to understand.
Does that mean that Mint 8 / Helena will have Grub 2 ?.
