We are creating also a python porting of Super-boot-manager. Soon it will be available.

If someone want to collaborate to create an rpm version of super-boot-manager, please contact me.
To do:
1) Some script created for Ubuntu must be adapted for Opensuse/Fedora/Mandriva....
2) Create an rpm version of Burg
3) Convert all theme for burg and plymouth to rpm.

If you want to collaborate to create a super-boot-manager version for other distros please contact me. Thanks

Guys, what a ugly,creepy,horrble mascot you have.
I wanted to try the app, but this picture... arrgh.
I would advice you to change it, not because I personally don't like it, but because such way of using mascots comes from windows applications made by schoolboys.

Anyway thanks for your work, i'm looking forward to use it, when you bring it to the new level. :)
