Because EFI is used on a GPT partion tabel a few things should be considered.
GPT does not allow extended partioning.
If you are installing Linux with, for example, 3 partitions (e.g. /, /home, /swap) you need to create these on primary partitions. GPT partition table allows you to create more then 3 primary partitions.
Two installations (Xubuntu 12.04 and Ubuntu 12.10 ... with encrypted /home partitions)
|/dev/sda2||/||Xubuntu 12.04 /|
|/dev/sda3||/home||Xubuntu 12.04 /home|
|/dev/sda4||swap||Xubuntu 12.04 swap (*)|
|/dev/sda5||/||Ubuntu 12.10 /|
|/dev/sda6||/home||Ubuntu 12.10 /home|
|/dev/sda7||swap||Ubuntu 12.10 swap (*)|
* the two swap partitions are necessary for the two encrypted /home partitions
** gparted will not recognize the swap partitions as such due to encryption
