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.
I mean, it’s quite obvious if you’ve ever installed openSUSE. It (without an option) automatically sets up dual boots for you.
There is no need to add an option when YaST already does it whenever it finds itself running on a system with windows present…
exactly. I add to this than since the beginning openSUSE *do not* write anything to the disk before stating actually the install, that is before the summary of install it gives.
so if ever one fear to have made an error, it's still possible to stop without any harm.
The debian like distro, AFAIK, do write to the disk the partitions as soon as the choice of partitions is done, much more dangerous...
moreover, in UEFI time, choosing what system is started first in done in firmware
