In Windows Search, type msinfo or msinfo32 and launch the desktop app named System Information. Look for the BIOS Mode item, and if the value for it is UEFI, then you have the UEFI firmware. If it says BIOS Mode Legacy, then that’s the firmware you’re running. Also, in general, UEFI-enabled machines have faster startup and shutdown times as compared to BIOS-Legacy machines. If you bought the computer/motherboard after 2010, chances are you have a UEFI system. If you are still unsure, download the UEFI version as it will also detect and run on a BIOS-Legacy computer.
It is highly recommended that you turn off Secure Boot or you will have a far less enjoyable computing experience. To disable Secure Boot, see here.
Linux Lite 6.6 Final is now available for download and installation. This is one our largest releases on record since we began in 2012. We've added 1000's of lines of new code in the form of supporting a large range of languages. We've massively increased the number of language translations across the entire Menu and Sub-Menu system, by adding support for 22 Languages. We had the time to take on a task of this magnitude so we used it completely. We spent an extra month working on this massive release to improve some translations and because of a change in personal circumstances. If you speak a language other than English, we hope you enjoy a vastly improved and a more complete Linux Lite.
If you're coming from Windows, you'll find this to be a solid, stable release that will help make your transition to a linux based operating system, user friendly. If you're coming from another linux based OS, you'll come to understand that this lightweight OS is the feature complete desktop you've been searching for. See below for What's New.
