Not so much.

I thought Blag, Dragora, Dynebolic, gNewSense, Musix, Parabola, 
Trisquel and Ututo were distros of the GNU operating system. But you 
say that the GNU operating system has Guix. Those distros do not have 
Guix. What would they be in relation to GNU then? ¿Not GNU (NG)?

Thank you for the clarification.
