Grub is the bootloader most Linux operating systems use at the moment - you most likely only interact with it while choosing the operating system you want to use if you are on a multi-boot system. But although you only see it for a short time, why not spice it up a bit?

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install grub-customizer

Now open Grub Customizer from a terminal or the menu, go to Preferences and customize your Grub menu to your likings:
