This project is part of the GNU Project.

GNU Guix is a purely functional package manager, and associated free software distribution, for the GNU system. In addition to standard package management features, Guix supports transactional upgrades and roll-backs, unprivileged package management, per-user profiles, and garbage collection.

It provides Guile Scheme APIs, including high-level embedded domain-specific languages (EDSLs), to describe how packages are to be built and composed.

The Guix System Distribution, or GuixSD, is GNU's advanced GNU/Linux distribution. GuixSD builds on the foundations of Guix to provide declarative system instantiation. GuixSD follows the GNU Free System Distribution Guidelines (GNU FSDG) and is endorsed by the Free Software Foundation.

Guix is based on the Nix package manager.
