Garuda Linux is a rolling distribution based on the Arch Linux that comes with a graphical installer (Calamares) for easy installation, and other advanced graphical tools for managing your system. It's a performance-oriented distribution that uses zram, a performance CPU governor, along with custom memory management software. Garuda has striven to provide system stability by including the Timeshift backup utility.
We are happy to release the brand new Raptor Eagle release on March 5 2023, one of our biggest and proudest releases to date. This release we focused on a brand new theme for Dr460nized as well as major internal and usability changes. See what months of improvements look like!
We ship our own browser, FireDragon which is forked from LibreWolf. Amongst its features are privacy-friendly defaults, enhanced KDE integration and a small collection of useful addons. The default search engine is SearX instance run on our server.
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 Snapper which employs an automatic snapshot feature, backing up the system configuration before each update. You can access recent snapshots directly from GRUB*
*Garuda Linux does not imply that BTRFS snapshots 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 data loss of any kind occurs. The user is solely responsible for ensuring the safety of their own data. Likewise, Garuda cannot guarantee that BTRFS snapshots can recover your system to a functional state in the event of a serious system breakage.
