The installation image is actually a full-blown GuixSD.  You can run
‘guix package’ in it, etc.

Granted, you’re probably looking for something more directly usable,
with Xorg and stuff.  We could publish such an image; the problem then
becomes disk space on the servers.  ;-)

That said, it’s easy to build one for you even if you don’t run GuixSD:
you can install Guix on your distro, whichever it is, and from there use
‘guix system vm’ to build a GuixSD image.

Would that be helpful?
