Windows NeoSmart Technologies has published a (fairly colorful and strongly-opinionated?) article on the new Windows 8 "touch-friendly" boot menu, and how in many ways it has come to resemble a mini-OS more than a traditional boot loader, introducing a completely new boot sequence and possibly even operating in protected mode. Also touches briefly on changes relating to the new "Secure Boot" initiative.

But that's what EasyBCD (the software in OP), it lets you chainload Linux/BSD/Mac and legacy windows from the Windows 8 bootmenu. It's really easy to use, too.
