The first thing to do is to re-size the main Windows partition. I use gparted (warning - back up your partition before you do this - you may wipe the partition - personally, I get excited at the thought of doing irreparable damage to Windows). Next I load in a Linux distribution. I have been using Slackware since 1996, and while I have tried some of the others over the years(Red Hat, Debian, Ubuntu, and especially pre-Novell SuSE), Slackware remains my favorite.
You the boot up with the Slackware 14.1 dvd (I used the 14.1-current, meaning unstable version of 9 June 2016) , and follow the instructions.
On the Acer Aspire F15 the touchpad 'right-click' no longer seems to work. This is because it has been changed to 'two finger double tap'. If at first the touchpad appears unresponsive, try the key sequence Fn-F7. You might also need to set the touchpad on legacy mode in the laptop BIOS.
I had mine upgraded to 16GB DRAM, and it passed its torture test: Google chromium browser Slackbuild, which it did in less than 24 hours.
AspireF15 ran a 1080p Full HD (Sistar's 'Give It to Me' on youtube is a convenient test) right out of the box with no trouble. It's CPU also supports VT-x which improves Qemu performance when running desktop applications. Windows looks alot more harmless when secured in a Qemu virtual machine sandbox, doesn't it?
