I see it as a competitor, for what I use guile for: deploying software written in Scheme to GNU platforms (must publish more of them). Do you think I should be using GNU/MIT instead?

Then again, given that most of what I want to do seems to involve interfacing with C things, should I stick with Guile? Our OS is written mostly in C, so aren't all things just extensions to C? This move has confused me. I thought Guile was GNU's Scheme and GNU's scripting language of choice. I was wondering if Guile knew where they fit in now that GNU has another Scheme implementation. So far, it seems not, unless they are to be just embedded extensions.
