Right now dual boot support is limited to windows variations. We only
look for windows partitions when adding to the new grub menu. Any dual
booting with Linux has to be manual and have some pre-planning (backup
your /boot partition). So a test day to test against other Linux
distributions probably isn't useful. And I think the windows dual boot
variations are already pretty well covered, aren't they?
