I'm currently trying out various distros so when I boot up my laptop I have several OS to choose from. Usually, all those distros install
grub2 and locate themselves at the top of the list so they're the default ones to boot up after the installation is complete.
But Manjaro did something different. It installed some version of
grub2 that would remember which distro I booted last time and kept booting that one (upon restart) until I selected another one (and then it would boot that one and so on).
Did I imagine this? Does Manjaro actually do that? If so, how can I install that version of
grub to my system? Cheers.
