Then we would stick to windows :) No seriously, we should use the best of the
two. Sounds quite simple, but it's hard to decide which one is better. Both of
them boot Linux, both of them boot other OS-es. LILO has a menu, grub doesn't
(?). Grub has a good command line, LILO hasn't. Grub can boot your system when
the config has changed, LILO can't. Let's use grub once it's declared stable.

There is no programming language, no matter how structured,
that will prevent programmers from writing bad programs.
