GRUB2 doesn't meet several requirements that vendors usually have:
* must be crappily coded (ignoring the GNU coding standard here)
* code must be unreadable to the casual trained observer
* must be full of redundancy
* must contain many superfluous functions
* must be hard to get working (vendors want to add value, right?)
* requires Visual Studio to compile

I can't speak for older versions of GRUB2, but 2.02 beta fails to fulfill any 
and all of the above requirements.
