MS-DOS and Windows XP compatibility, for example. I think even Windows 7
uses MBR by default. For me, MBR is preferred for a dualboot
configuration for compatibility reasons.

Besides, I don't know of a small simple boot manager (like boot0) for
GPT. Can you advise one?

PS if I install a dedicated FreeBSD system, I usually go for GPT.
