I would just like to mention that i am having no problems with it on my system, with regards to stability or any thing else.

I have also got duel boot working with out any problems as well.
Admittedly this is not on an asus motherboard, but the point is it does
work, and this is not affecting every one.

May be people that have "trashed their windows install" should have read
the release notes before jumping in head first with both feat (however
contorted one must get to end up like that).

The only thing that may have been nice is if there was a way to detect
the main board during the install (before grub gets installed), and
warns the user. But that's more of a nicety then a necessity...
