My general understanding is that grub has "many more features"
but is much bigger than lilo.  But, how many features does a
boot loader need?  Either it boots or it does not.  ;-)

I'm like you - still using lilo, because I already know how
to use it and it does everything I want it to do.  Why learn
a whole new way of doing things if there's no payoff?
