Garuda Linux is a Linux distribution based on Arch Linux that aims to provide a colorful desktop environment. It is named after Garuda, a legendary bird in Hindu, Buddhist and Jain faith. It is also aimed at the gaming industry, with pre-installed tools that make installing gaming software easier out of the box, the linux-zen kernel, and the BTRFS file system.

Like Arch Linux, it is a rolling release distribution, with no fixed release and simply updates packages installed.
