No, not just you mate
When going native, I give it's own partition and install GRUB on that partition so it doesn't 'hijack' The Windows bootloader. Then I use EasyBCD to add the distro to the Windows loader.
A little more dicking around initially, but worth it in the long run. Makes it a lot easier to remove the distro without affecting Windows either.
And yeah - the current distros are a bloody mess.
