GNU Guix is the package manager of the GNU system.  The GNU system is
the GNU/{Linux,Hurd} distribution that uses Guix as its package manager,
dmd as its init system, the GNU libc, etc.

So the distribution is called “the GNU system”, or “GNU”.

Easy, no?  :-)

If you think that should be clarified or something, please do share your
thoughts on that.
