Tested with Linux Mint 17, after setting UEFI to CSM mode, and the boot order to include a USB stick. No problems encountered during installation. Screen correctly configured to the maximum resolution. Cinammon correctly scales menus and fonts so they are readable. Fonts in Firefox and Thunderbird are initially too small. This can be fixed by configuring layout.css.devPixelsPerPx to 2.0 in about:config in Firefox and the equivelent in Thunderbird.
Compatibility appears to be good.
