Default why different BIOS for Windows and Linux?

I got a mainboard out of an Acer X3995, I wished to recycle.
First had to figure out the pins for the front panel switch and LEDs.
Going to Acer website, they have 4 BIOS to download:
2 for Win8, 1 for Win7 and 1 for linux.
Why so? I don't think other manufacturers specify a restrictive BIOS.
