No because I don't want to wait to select the disk boot order at bootup, even using the specific boot key. My choice, for reasons given. I think it's more convenient and quicker to swap system priority while still in Windows - hot key to System Properties > Advanced > Startup and Recovery > Default OS dropdown open and ready to select and hit Enter. Hit restart and I don't have to watch the boot screen at all. Basically 3 clicks and a rest for my eyes while the systems change over.
