9 The other question is why use GRUB on a modern system? UEFI boot managers
10 are far simpler to work with than GRUBs monster configuration file and in
11 that case it makes sense to combine /boot with the ESP and use VFAT for
12 it.
14 As for the original question, AIUI ext2 was recommended more because there
15 was no need for ext3/4 and journalling on such a small filesystem, rather
16 than there being any compelling reason for not using ext4, so use what
17 you want.
