Installing Ubuntu on UEFI / secure boot
I've been an Ubuntu user for a few years now having dual booted with windows.
What I'd like to do now is to get a new PC and have it just running Ubuntu.
What is the best way to set up partitions etc to make distro upgrades as simple as possible in the future? I know there's a way to create /home in a different partition and then mount it so no data is lost when a new USB/CD is used to upgrade to the next release but I don't know how to do it.
All new machines seem to ship with Win8 - I'm aware of issues with UEFI and secure boot but is installing Ubuntu alone as simple as disabling secure boot in UEFI and then proceeding as normal with installation USB/CD?
I'm a PC and Linux is a better idea
