Run the Ubuntu live DVD and see for yourself. It will save you time in the long run. The Acer Aspire ATC-605-UB11's specs are more than adequate for Ubuntu 13.10. –  karel Apr 6 at 21:43

I turned secure boot off in the bios and installed mint 16 from a DVD. Both Windows and Linux seem to be happy. I could not get the install DVD to boot with secure boot enabled. I don't know what the ramifications of running Windows 8.1 without secure boot enabled are but it is working.
