Hi everyone, does any of you have experience with #Guix? Would you recommend it for a work laptop?

I'm asking cause I read it's sitll in beta.


@mdallastella If your laptop is linux-libre compatible, then I think it's ready to go, otherwise it's a bit of a hassle.

After running into hardware issues, I went with NixOS for my work laptop. (But now I feel constant guix envy, because the nix language is a bit icky.)

@jboy I'm very curious about #Nix / #Guix, especially the latter, for the use of Guile. I'm a Clojure/Lisp developer so it sounds great to me. Thanks.

@mdallastella I went through installing in a VM once before doing it on my laptop, which was a good "dry run" to get a feel for how things work. Perhaps you could try the same. It only takes ~1h

@jboy @mdallastella It wasn't that much of a problem for me cause it was easy enough to provide your own definitions for kernel/drivers but I've switched to nix in the end because of package availability
