@xerz @alcinnz What's good for one is usually good for the other! Most of the suffering in the FOSS world is caused by the disconnect between a mess of "language package managers" and "distro package managers". For a long time, the former didn't go fast enough, and things got quite messy for the latter.
But using "guix environment" as a "universal virtualenv" helps Debian too: if you can package it in one, you can package it in the other!
Maybe it's for people like me? I'm very satisfied with Debian and using apt/aptitude/synaptic.
But sometimes I want stuff that's not been packaged for Debian (yet), and then maybe I need a newer version of Qt or Rust or whatever to satisfy the build dependencies.
Having guix for that seems like a much better solution than cobbling stuff together.
