Is "--manifest" really "daily use" for a Guix newbie? I would disagree
and first stick to the "--install" --"remove "--rollback"
"--list-generations" mode.

I would mention the simplest version of "guix pull", i.e. the way it is
set up by default with the "default" channel. I think it is a really
important tool, compared to "apt-get update" on Debian.

We can then put the more complicated parts like channels into another
video, but I think that a simple "guix pull" MUST be in here.
