Can be tricky to install multi-boot – uefi does not allow some live CDs to boot properly (eg, Linux Lite, WattOS). I was successful installing Manjaro linux as a second OS. It's a little snappier than the factory install of Ubuntu (the untweaked Ubuntu install = 800 mb in RAM; Manjaro = 600 mb in RAM). For even snappier performance it's possible to boot from a Porteus or Puppy live USB, though getting the network card (Broadcom) to work is problematic. All in all, the choices ASUS made in implementing uefi and in network hardware make the 1015e less Linux-friendly than other laptops – even though it comes with Ubuntu pre-installed.

Ubuntu 12.04 > Brightness wont work. Linuxmint 15 64bit> wireless wont work. Xubuntu 13.10 in both 32 and 64 bit everything works except card reader and sound keys. 64 bit is much faster than 32.
