There is one detail you forget: double booting with Win 8, which has
been said will not boot if the feature is disabled⁽¹⁾. This would
require to enable/disable the feature in Bios, then choosing one or

AFAIK you can boot windows 8 in 'untrusted' mode, which is what I
assume would be a user who uses older hardware without secure boot
present but UEFI capabilities.
