I designed something similar a couple of years ago.
I optimized for dual-booting, including only a button for restarting
into one other system. But if there are three or more systems, it
could be a combo button, with a menu listing the other options.
Ubuntu Light -- not the Ubuntu Light font, not the Ubuntu Light
themes, but the 2010-vintage Ubuntu Light "instant-on" environment --
included a "Restart Into Windows" button in its launcher.
So code exists to do this, somewhere.
