Quite a success :-) It's been picked up on Ubuntu Geek[0], although
they suggest to install it from the Debian/Ubuntu repository which
packages the version 0.2.

> It's written in C/Gtk, and only supports grub2 (1.98+). A windows
> version is available as well, see the homepage for more information.
> One reason I post this here is that I designed the program so that it

> work to integrate it into the session logout screen. I'd be interested
> in hearing how many people would be interested in such an integration.
> Thanks,
