This so-called secure boot applies only to UEFI and not BIOS.

But yes, I think it's a good idea that Windows 8 cannot be installed in 
BIOS computers (currently more than 99% of all existing computers), that 
Windows 7 (or older) cannot upgrade to Windows 8.

Microsoft revenue stream, since Wins 98, has been from upgrades.

I'll be cheering if they do that.
