Hi everyone,

     > The guix system transactions are NON-MODULAR. That is, you cannot
    selectively reconfigure certain parts of the system. For example,
    you either reconfigure the system as a whole (or) you do not
    reconfigure the system at all.

Today's software systems are inherently non-modular. Guix is the most advanced technology we have to work around this problem, but it doesn't solve it. The problem is so hard to solve because it requires most of all a change in everyone's attitude towards software development, and thus very probably different organizational structures (because of Conway's Law).
