Is Boil over a big problem ?

i talked to a few guys about coolant in there cars, and I have heard a magnitude of things such as: water its plenty fine (distilled of course), "water wetter" helps but only in certain cars, anything gold (coolant wise) will work from german cars because it contains an oil additive such as the blue stuff from BMW, and if a car runs "hot" then over boil can be a real problem for disappearing coolant.

last question if boil over is a real problem can make water evaporate in a closed system ?

getting ready to do a fluid swap in my car and need some info on coolant misconceptions
