Description

BeOS defaults to the top, while Haiku defaults to the bottom. Not a big issue, but it does confuse me for a second each time I am in the boot menu and it's in a different start spot than I expect.

Enter a submenu by pressing the spacebar is no longer available, the return key has to be used. That's because the spacebar is used to enter the boot menu and the first item is a submenu… The spacebar is still valid for other items.

Thanks for your patch! It does feel more natural somehow. Applied in hrev29832.
