I'm sure Gerard does.

I had never expected so many votes. The Grub vs LILO discussions never had
that many participants (mostly the same people going back and forth). The
discussions gave me the impression that the LILO and GRUB camps were about
even. But as this vote shows, there seems to be a large number of Grub
users who do not participate in the LILO vs GRUB discussions/wars. So my
impression is that this vote is etremely valuable because it gives people
a way of expressing their preference without having to join a pointless
war. Besides, I'm sure your mailer can filter by subject.
