Secure Boot protects both experienced and inexperienced users in a manner that doesn't restrict their choices or force them to change their behavior. Why is this a bad thing?

Let me reiterate this: Secure Boot does not restrict user choices. It also provides protection from a whole class of common exploits. Not the most common, but still common.
