Ubuntu has been making repeated efforts to make its OS simpler for most desktop users. Some of the past changes included hiding technical details of Updates and improving the software center to make it suitable for the average home user. Here comes another pleasant update from the Canonical team, hiding kernel entries in GRUB boot menu.
The earlier GRUB in Ubuntu used to show the OS name as well as the kernel version, something like 3.2.x.x etc. But from Ubuntu 12.10, the GRUB menu will only show the OS name. This move is taken because an average desktop user need not know the version of the kernel he is using.
We hope efforts like these will remove the tag that Linux is a geek OS.
