I mean, it's quite obvious if you've ever installed Ubuntu. It provides an
option that automatically sets up dual boots for you. openSUSE does not have anything
like this. This is especially useful for beginners coming from Windows as it's even
able to resize existing Windows partitions in order to make room for the install.

There is no need to add an option when YaST already does it whenever it finds itself
running on a system with windows present…
IF the disk is big enough.
I tried installing openSUSE on a 40GB windows 10 system (15GB used) and
it decided to wipe windows completely, without additional notifications
apart from the partitioning summary screen that says "remove /dev/sda1" ;-)
It did automatically resize windows when I enlarged the "disk" to 100GB.
I guess that's because of the selection of BTRFS as default which can
not work well on small systems.
