I haven't tried it, but i am pretty sure it will work just fine.

Just remember that installing Windows 8 while having Ubuntu will override the grub and install the Windows boot manager. But you can re-install grub by booting from Ubuntu live cd/usb.

I've heard that Microsoft will work on making it hard to dual-boot with other OSs in future computers, but for now you are safe :)
