There are those nasty real-world constraints, indeed. I'd be happy to run 100% free software on personal hardware. But my employer restricts the hardware I am allowed to buy and requires me to use Microsoft Windows (no, LibreOffice won't do). That makes macOS an attractive choice, the alternative being a Windows/Linux dual boot system.

A "free software subsystem" inside macOS is definitely attractive for me, because I could then run strictly the same software as my Linux-using colleagues. With the features of Guix, it would be even better.
