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.

A user-land free software distribution for GNU/Linux comes as part of Guix.

Guix is based on the Nix package manager.
