OS: Debian/unstable, grub2 1.98-1. Motiva

The /etc/grub.d/README file reads:

  00_*: Reserved for 00_header.
  10_*: Native boot entries.
  20_*: Third party apps (e.g. memtest86+).


Please consider naming files using dash(-) instead of underscore(_).


- Most of the linux files use dash(-) instead of underscore.
  This would keep the naming more uniform for e.g. search tools,
  etc. (compare to /usr/bin/*-*)
- The dash(-) is visually more distinc when the "bar" sigil
  is raised from the visible baseline of typing. This helps
  in small displays or where font size is reduced.
- The dash(-) makes it easier to access the files e.g. when
  completing the names in editor or in the shell prompt. For
  each word separator, you need to press SHIFT modifier for
  the underscore (_)
