Only partial true. The Windows bootloader is able to chainload other bootloaders, so if you have a bootloader installed to a partition (usually the /-partition of your Linux install) there is no problem other that a little configuring to boot Linux from the Windows bootloader. All we need to know is the answer to syg00's question.
By the way, why is Grub not a third party bootloader?
