Introducing Guix, a package manager and distro for GNU

GNU Guix is an on-going project to build a purely functional package manager and free software distribution of 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.

Guix is approaching its first alpha release. It comes with a small and growing, self-contained user-land software distribution.

The road map details the current plan. Let us know what you think, and join the fun!
