Hey guys I would like some advice on my partitioning. I currently have:

   #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER
   0:      GUID_partition_scheme                        *640.1 GB   disk0
   1:                        EFI                         209.7 MB   disk0s1
   2:       Microsoft Basic Data Windows 8               78.6 GB    disk0s2
   3:       Microsoft Basic Data                         59.1 GB    disk0s3
   4:                 Linux Swap                         8.6 GB     disk0s4
   5:       Microsoft Basic Data Data                    338.2 GB   disk0s5
   6:                  Apple_HFS Mac HD                  79.9 GB    disk0s6
   7:                 Apple_Boot Recovery HD             650.0 MB   disk0s7
   8:                  Apple_HFS Time Machine            74.9 GB    disk0s8

I want to create a new partition for Mavericks. I think I can use space from the Mac HD and Time Machine partitions using disk utility???, but I don't want to mess up my partition table as I am using a pure GPT and all OS's are booting UEFI. I don't want it to create a Hybrid MBR/GPT. 
So will it be ok using disk utility, or should I use something like GParted in linux?
