The logic here is unclear. Technical users are surely the ones most able 
to deal with this situation? I'll point out here that Windows gives no 
visible prompt to obtain bootup options and the world doesn't seem to 
have ended, so if we have machines where it's currently *impossible* to 
get to the grub menu then that sounds like a bug in grub that needs to 
be rectified.
