Reboot the system.

Auxtral has support for UEFI?
- Yes, from the update of your Debian base to Bullseye 11.2 and the kernel update to version 5.10.0-10-amd64 Auxtal has UEFI support
If I choose a version with a certain desktop (DE), can I install applications from another environment?
- Yes, you can, what's more, that is part of Auxtral's philosophy regarding pre-installed applications, for example, the "text editor" Pluma, is typical of the "Mate" environment, but it comes as a default in all applications. versions of Auxtral. This distro does not have any "document viewer" pre-installed, for the simple reason that I don't know if you need it !!!; when you install one, and if you chose the version with DE Mate, that does not imply in any way that you have to use "Atril", you can perfectly install "Okular" (from KDE) if it suits you more. I will never understand the "purists" of a system like GNU / Linux.
Can I use Auxtral for commercial purposes?
- Yes absolutely
Can I sell Auxtral?
- Yes, you can sell Auxtral without permission. What you can't do is pretend to be Auxtral or let people believe that you are affiliated with Auxtral.
I can install Auxtral on the computers that I sell to my clients?
- Yes. but Auxtral (like Debian) does not have an OEM mode installer, which does not mean that you can.
Can I use the Auxtral logo and / or screenshots?
- Yes. You can use, promote and display Auxtral, Auxtral screenshots and the logo in articles, magazines, websites, books, designs, movies or any document as long as you do not pretend to be Auxtral and you do not allow people to believe that you are affiliated to Auxtral

Does Auxtral include proprietary drivers?
- No. Proprietary drivers such as ATI or Nvidia are easy to install, but they are not installed by default in Auxtral and neither are any non-free software packages.
And what about proprietary software or Windows itself?
- Auxtral does not endorse any political or ideological stance against any software program or publisher, regardless of the license they use. That being said, all the software used in Auxtral is free and open source "free software". I believe in free software as a wonderful tool, an extraordinary option, but in no way as a limitation. I also think it makes sense to share code, give credit to the technology we use, profess that people help each other, allow others to build on what I am doing, and allow progress in general. And fundamentally enjoy sharing with users.
