Chameleon is an open-source EFI bootloader project for BIOS-based x86 systems. It is designed to replace Darwin and PC EFI bootloaders with new features, such as GRUB and Windows Bootloader compatibility. Chameleon is often used as the bootloader for computers running OSx86. (Computers running OSx86 on unofficial hardware are often called "Hackintoshes".)
Chameleon currently uses a text based interface like most bootloaders. The next version of Chameleon, 2.0, is going to have a GUI with support for true 24-bit PNG image files, with transparency support. Currently, a release candidate of the version 2.0 is available for download by anyone on the official website.
