Special Spotlights

Easy Installation


We make the install process simple by using the Calamares installer which is both easy to use and makes the installation process fast.

Unleash the beauty


With handpicked themes, appealing shell themes and beautiful blur effects out of box, Garuda Linux never lets you down.

BTRFS as the default filesytem with zstd compression.


BTRFS is a modern copy on write (CoW) filesystem for Linux aimed at implementing advanced features while also focusing on fault tolerance, repair and easy administration.

Automatic snapshots Out of Box using Timeshift


You can access 5 latest snapshots directly from GRUB

While being a rolling release distro our goal is to ensure that your system will not be left in an unbootable state after a problematic update. Thus we use the BTRFS filesystem integrated with Timeshift, which employs an automatic snapshot feature which backs up the system configuration before each update.*

Rolling Release

Garuda Linux is a rolling release distro based on Arch Linux which ensures always getting the latest software updates.

We use only one extra repo on top of Arch Linux repos placing us very close to Arch Linux without having to install the system with CLI.


A faster more responsive Linux kernel optimized for desktop, multimedia and gaming.

Result of a collaborative effort of kernel hackers to provide the best Linux kernel possible for everyday systems.

Ease of use

We use micro as default terminal-based text editor that aims to be easy to use and intuitive while taking advantage of the capabilities of modern terminals.

Garuda Linux offers you GUI tools for managing system settings out of the box to make your jumpstart easier.

Always Free

Garuda Linux will always be completely free. We create it to have a Linux based operating system that is easy to use.

Focus on Performance

Our goal is to provide a distro that focuses only on performance while making it beautiful. Thats why we have made some (sane) performance tweaks.

1. Improved I/O performance.
2. Automatic CPU frequency scaling depending on load.
3. ZRAM enabled by default.
4. Nohang, an OOM prevention daemon.
5. As well as Ananicy, which automatically sets nice levels on your system.
*Garuda Linux does not imply that Timeshift and BTRFS are a full backup solution. If you wish to ensure your data's security you must implement your own full data backup regimen. Garuda is not responsible in any way or manner if a data loss occurs. The user is soley responsible for ensuring the safety of their own data. Likewise, Garuda cannot guarantee that Timeshift can recover your system to a functional state in the event of a serious system breakage.
