UEFI/Secure Boot

UEFI + Secure boot are really completely different issues.

UEFI is 100% fine to use (it has various benefits over bios boot) - I have Fedora, Kubuntu, Linux Mint, Arch all installed in UEFI mode - there is not any issues. The rEFInd boot loader does everything I need.

Secure boot is completely different issue - it is secure boot that prevents installation of other OS's not UEFI.

Your poll should separate the choices.
