It may be true that most laptops have "Secure Boot" enabled, but not those
running Fedora. We don't have numbers to support that claim, and most devices
require "Secure Boot" to be disabled, or to have the mode changed so that it
accepts new keys, to install Fedora.
This is not true. Fedora installs perfectly fine on Secure
Boot-enabled systems without any change to the enrolled keys. Our shim
package is signed by a key that has been required to be trusted for
virtually all x86 PCs for the past several years.
The *only* case where Secure Boot must be disabled for the proper
functioning of a PC today is if you use the NVIDIA proprietary
drivers, because nobody is helping RPM Fusion set up a mechanism to
sign their driver and load the key into the kernel for trust.
