Getting my hands dirty with GuixSD

4 minute read Published:

So last week, being bored with Fedora I tried to spice up my computing life with trying the GuixSD. It is a GNU/Linux distro that is built along the lines proposed by NixOS, that is it’s a declarative distro (meaning you declare how you want your system to be and it builds itself this way). The idea behind these systems is quite novel and a good start to understand the principles can be found in the original paper that defined the concept and led to the creation of NixOS.
