It's a very locked down device. There's an option in the EFI to select
"Linux" or "Windows" boot mode. But you could simply buy the
ComputeStick model that has Ubuntu Linux pre-loaded on it:

However, I don't have experience with that model. We purchased the
ComputeStick to evaluate it as a possible replacement in our campus
computer labs, which run Windows. So we bought the Windows
ComputeStick. I was able to boot a Fedora Linux LiveUSB on it, just to
try it out, but it was really sloooooooooooooooow to boot and (IIRC)
didn't recognize the wireless interface.
