Support for compilation under musl and uClibc. This has meant eradicating plenty of GNUisms, including ones that spread out as deeply as requiring specific printf(3) semantics. No journald. Consequently, this also means no libqrencode and libmicrohttpd integration, nor hooking coredumps to the journal. The default log target for auxiliaries is now LOG_TARGET_KMSG_OR_SYSLOG. The main case against binary logs is their corruptibility. This happens more often than you’d think, due to not having any transaction consistency, as an RDBMS would. The advice of the systemd developers on handling this? Ignore it. Otherwise, the main legitimate case for binary logs (but actually journald in particular) is Forward Secure Sealing. This is no longer a dealbreaker, since rsyslog supports log signing through GuardTime since 3.7.9 now. You can also use a combination of OpenSSL or the NSS signtool plus logrotate jobs to verify log authenticity, though this is more intricate. Secondary concerns includ
GRUB – ArchWiki
In brief, the bootloader is the first software program that runs when a computer starts. It is responsible for loading and transferring control to the Linux kernel. The kernel, in turn, initializes the rest of the operating system.

Master Boot Record – ArchWiki
The MBR consists of a short piece of assembly code (the initial bootloader – 446 bytes), a partition table for the 4 primary partitions (16 bytes each) and a sentinel (0xAA55). The "Conventional" Windows/DOS MBR bootloader code will check the partition table for one and only one active partition, read X sectors from this partition and then transfer control to the operating system. The Windows/DOS bootloader can not boot an Arch Linux partition because it is not designed to load the Linux kernel, and it can only cater for an active, primary partition (which GRUB safely ignores). The GRand Unified Bootloader (GRUB) is the de facto standard bootloader for GNU/Linux, and users are recommended to install it on the MBR to allow booting from any partition, whether it be primary or logical. Backup and restoration Because the MBR is located on the disk it can be backed up and later recovered. To backup the MBR: dd if=/dev/sda of=/path/mbr-backup bs=512 count=1 Restore the MBR: dd if=/path/m…

Es ist empfehlenswert Windows als erstes Betriebssystem zu installieren, da bei der Windows-Installation der Master Boot Record (MBR) ohne Nachfrage überschrieben wird und damit andere Bootloader wie GRUB gelöscht werden. Da der native Windows-Bootloader die Ubuntu-Installation nicht automatisch erkennt, kann Ubuntu dann nicht mehr gestartet werden. GRUB wiederherzustellen ist je nach Erfahrung mehr oder weniger aufwändig.
