  1. Pirate OS developer have lots of noob!
    Claim to being an individual work but cannot hide the indication

    GnuCash, KMyMoney - finance program (replacement MYOB, MS Money, Quicken)

    Most important to tell the difference:
    " The core (kernel) operating system:"
    I can wonder what kind of kernel will use the number? Certainly something not use the Linus?

    But more because the operating system even come with a very displaying program " Play on Linux," reveal the fact of copy.


  2. In my opinion, Garuda OS is not pirated operating system. but more towards the development of a Linux-based operating system. Because Garuda OS itself is LINUX-based operating system with the development systems of local Indonesia. Maybe is not a new operating system or its more similar to other Linux Distro.
    I think Linux itself is an open operating system (open source) and allow anyone to develop and create with LINUX.
    Well, nothing is perfect in this world, humans sometimes it is negligent. It may be in the making Garuda OS, OS makers are still many shortcomings and weaknesses. So, For more details you can give suggestions and criticisms directly to the official website of Garuda OS at, maybe they want to open and answer
