Hrm, isn't Guix also the name of the distro? says that "GNU Guix is a purely functional
package manager for the GNU system, and a distribution thereof."  And
then the Guix logo has the "The GNU System" subtitle, and the page is
about both the package manager and the distro, etc.

I suppose it makes sense to use the more specific name Guix when
differentiating between GNU/Linux distros, talking about this specific
project, etc., although the resulting distro is also *the* GNU distro.
