About GNU Guix

GNU Guix is a functional package manager for the GNU system.  The Guix System Distribution (GuixSD) is an advanced distribution of the GNU system that relies on GNU Guix.

In addition to standard package management features, Guix supports transactional upgrades and roll-backs, unprivileged package management, per-user profiles, and garbage collection.  It also offers a declarative approach to operating system configuration management.  Guix uses low-level mechanisms from the Nix package manager, except that packages are defined as native Guile modules, using extensions to the Scheme language.

At this stage the Guix System Distribution can be used on an i686 or x86_64 machine. It is also possible to use Guix on top of an already installed GNU/Linux system, including on mips64el and armv7.
