Hi Joshua,

Thanks for following up on this!  Minor comments:

Joshua Branson <> skribis:

I’d start the sentence with something like “To run Guix on a server
hosted by @uref{, Linode}, start with a …”.
(That makes it clear what we’re talking about, what Linode is, etc.)

> +distro as a way to bootstrap Guix. Create your @code{SSH} keys.

I realize I wasn’t clear: @code is for code snippets.  When referring to
Linode (the service/company) or SSH (the protocol), just write it as is,
without @code.

You would use @code for a command (like @code{rm -rf /foo}) and @file
for a file name (like @file{/dev/sdc}).  Text enclosed in @code or @file
is rendered with a fixed-width font and possibly a different background

> +"..." and select "Edit", then on that menu add to /dev/sdc the "Guix"
@file here.

> +root@@<your-server-ip-here>}. (You can find your server ip address in

And s/ip/IP/.

Let me know if you can take care of those last (I promise!) changes.

Thank you!
