Got a SC15 on the way, wanted to know if anyone has any info on dual booting a linux distro on this laptop? Any major issues or anything I should consider before trying it out?

    Tried to boot Linux off a USB today on an SC15.  I built the content of the USB stick using TuxBoot on another computer. That was a mistake, as it was not created as a UEFI-compatible boot device.  I remade the USB using Rufus.
     
    Press F7 to get the boot manager.
    Press F2 to enter the BIOS setup.
     
    In the boot manager menu, the USB will show with text starting with "UEFI:" followed by some kind of device name.  My USB boot device had a name that looked nothing like I expected, but selecting it did bring up the Linux distro I put there.
     
    If you decide to give it a shot, please reply with your experiences.

    Just tried Ubuntu 18.04 LTS on USB created by Rufus.
     
    WiFi, Bluetooth all seem to work just fine.
