As promised, I checked back in on Nix a year after my blog post:

Last month someone got "hello world" to build! Maybe I should make time to take another run at it or guix.

@pushcx Personally I think Guix, while less mature, is far more interesting and feels like the evolution of Nix.
The tooling is better and provides more interesting and useful features. Using Git repos as a package repo was a brilliant idea.
And with the full power of Scheme behind it you can do a LOT in Guix.

@rushsteve1 Thanks, that's an interesting choice and I'm glad to see that not inventing a programming language pays off as expected.
