Hello and thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer

Hopefully this is a simple question but is the Volume Boot Record (VBR) only used in Windows? I've seen references to it in relationship to Windows & not Linux... but I'm not sure if that means it's unique to Windows or not. If it is used in Linux can someone give me a quick run down on the criteria of when it would be used?

Could someone straighten me out there please? Thanks!
