The people at Fosdem inspired me to move to GuixSD.  I have tried
GuixSD with ratpoison, xfce and guile-wm (oh, how I'd love to get
another sawfish-like windowmanager!) but now moved from Ubuntu
to Debian-hosted with guix.  For now.

I am using this snippet in (operatating-system) to multi-boot

    (device "/dev/sda")
    ;; Here is my hack (grub-configuration appends bzImage to `linux')
    ;; to add a custom entry for debian on /dev/sda3 to the Grub menu
    ;; On Debian, do:
    ;;   sudo mkdir -p /boot/latest
    ;;   sudo ln -s $(ls -t /boot/vmlinuz*|head -1) /boot/latest/bzImage
    ;;   sudo ln -s $(ls -t /boot/initrd*|head -1) /boot/latest/initrd
     (list (menu-entry
            (label "debian")
            (linux "(hd0,msdos3)/boot/latest")
             '("root=UUID=73ede06b-19e0-4d09-bc1e-23fe6c76d77a ro"))
            (initrd "(hd0,msdos3)/boot/latest/initrd"))))))

how are you all doing this?  Can we/do we want to give almost-GuixSD
users a better experience?
