Has anyone tried installing 12.2 beta (using grub2) in dualboot with
an existing 12.1 system (using legacy grub)?

If yes, does it work right out of the box? Is it seamless? (like
traditionally dualbooting multiple openSUSE versions all using
grub). Anything I should be aware of?

I'd like to test 12.2 beta on my real hardware, by installing it on
my test partition. But I'm scared of being left unable to boot my
12.1 production system. So I'd be happy to hear if others have good
(or bad) experiences with similar setups.

In case anyone else has these concerns. In the end I decided to
install 12.2beta with legacy-grub and dual-booting with 12.1 worked
without any issues.

Same here. There seems to be not enough experience with grub2 for the
time being.
