As a technical user, it's another thing I immediately have to "fix"
post-install, usually by rebooting a couple of times to make sure I get
into grub at just the right moment. But moreso, it's become expected on
Linux systems that one will get some kind of bootloader prompt/timeout. 

If it were up to me, there'd be a full bootloader prompt back too :)
