GNU Guix

[GNU Guix]

GNU Guix is a universal functional package manager and operating system which respects the freedom of computer users. It focuses on boostrappability and reproducibility to give the users strong guarantees on the integrity of the full software stack they are running. It supports atomic upgrades and roll-backs which make for an effectively unbreakable system. This project aims to enhance multiple facets; the main three goals are: (1) distributed package distribution (e.g. over IPFS), (2) composable and programmable user configurations / services (a way to replace "dotfiles" by modules that can be distributed and serve a wide audience), (3) broaden accessibility via, among others, a graphical user interface for installation / package management.
