- Liberating. The Guix System Distribution (GuixSD) is an advanced distribution of the GNU operating system developed by the GNU Project—which respects the freedom of computer users.
- Dependable. It comes with the GNU Guix package manager, which in addition to standard package management features, supports transactional upgrades and roll-backs, unprivileged package management, per-user profiles, and more.
- Hackable. It provides Guile Scheme APIs, including high-level embedded domain-specific languages (EDSLs) to define packages and whole-system configurations.
GuixSD comes with thousands of packages which include applications, system tools, documentation, fonts, and other digital goods readily available for installing with the GNU Guix package manager.
