Background loading in the GRUB boot menu?

I don't know if this is a practical improvement. The idea goes something something like this. If you
like me run a dual boot setup I get annoyed having to press the return button on my laptop during
boot to save time. So I thought why cant the default Linux distribution automatically start loading in
the background. At least put files in RAM. In the less likely event I want to start Windows, the
background loading should abort and start Windows as usual.
With this, if I set the wait-time to less than the distribution boot time. I know I don't have to bother
engaging the bootmenu to save time. Just leave it as it is.
