    If a bootloader can circumvent Secure Boot protections, is it really "secure?"

            Grub is far too big these days...

            They should have an option of “press a key to boot to a special OS” rather than the built-in commandline and gui.

            We don’t *really* need a boot loader that has all those features... (or at least most people don’t).

            just boot my machine, or switch to real OS if I am doing something interactive...

                    Not really.

                    Without secure boot, these things could probably be done by default. By having it you are not getting any worse security than before, but at times it wont be better either due to these types of issues.
