Hi everyone,

My pleasure!  Hopefully it will help more people to learn about Guix.

My hope was that by demonstrating various scenarios, or use cases, it
would show viewers more concretely and more convincingly how Guix can
help them.  A good demonstration can be better than an explanation.

On a related note, I'm excited about Laura Lazzati's Outreachy project
to create video documentation, since I'm sure there are many, many more
scenarios that can be effectively demonstrated through short videos!
Laura, I'm cheering you on!  :-)

Thank you, Mark.  Actually, I submitted a request to have the video
added, so I suppose we can resolve that now:

However, I don't actually know how to resolve it.  Do you?

Too true!  The stickers were nice, but actually the reference cards were
even more popular.  I printed a few dozen copies on paper vellum, and
most of them were gone when I left the room.  Thank you, Ludo, for
creating the reference card just in time for my talk!  ;-)
