But when we're booting a kernel (Linux) we just say that.  Shouldn't we
be consistent and say "bootmgr" and "ntldr" too?

Btw, to make this even more interesting, there's also freeldr, which can
be used to boot either Windows NT/2000/XP or ReactOS.

  The DRM opt-in fallacy: "Your data belongs to us. We will decide when (and
  how) you may access your data; but nobody's threatening your freedom: we
  still allow you to remove your data and not access it at all."
