[kwlug-disc] Linux on Windows 8 laptops with UEFI

So, it has been many years since I got a new laptop.

Nowadays, there is UEFI and secure boot, and all that on Windows 8 laptops.

Would secure boot and UEFI be problematic if one wants to get a new laptop
and make it dual boot?
Would they prevent Linux from being installed and/or co-exist with Windows?

Any experience with newer hardware with Linux?
