<Kehlyos>While sometimes, i don't really like nix's syntax, if there is no major advantages over nixos, i am not really ready to switch to guix (FSF and philosophy is not really major for me, i am the kind of linux user that does not mind using systemd, and loves nvidia's propriatary bullshit, because i get more performance out of it)
<darlinger>davexunit: sort of scares me to be honest. i know binary blobs and proprietary stuff has been stripped out, but any major projects that i should know about that have been excluded/stripped out?
<davexunit>we'd borrow their ideas, not their source, most likely.
<darlinger>davexunit: while the package manager and how it handles it are different, we're still building our stuff with gcc
<davexunit>but the way in which we describe packages and run builds are different.
<davexunit>so the portage source would give us a reference implementation, and then we'd write a guile/guix version.
<darlinger>davexunit: how so? i haven't read the docs on guix quite yet. i was hoping it would be similar to Nix, which i just read the docs to... and they basically use their own DSL with some shell script here and there
