It is thought that secure boot of Windows 8 may be threat to the Linux.But a security researcher Peter Kleissner has claimed that secure boot of Windows 8 has aleady been cracked.We developed a bootkit that will bypass the security easily.He'll release it in  International Malware Conference MalCon in India.So nothing is absolute here.

Generally, there should not appear any problems regarding to boot in Windows 8. There is no relation or influence of Windows 8 on Linux. Machines with UEFI will definitely provide shorter boot times.
