Hi Folks,

Is there a good, current, overview presentation on all things GUIX?  The whole who, what, where, when, why, how, how much, and who cares overview that one might give at USENIX, describing a new distro.

I've been doing a lot of googling, and not finding anything remotely current.  Lots of stuff on detailed aspects, some videos (but no slides) from FOSDEM 2019 - but nothing that gives the big picture, the overall architecture, the build process, and so forth.

It seems like the release of v1.0.0 merits a serious intro/overview/tutorial for those of us who might be interested in exploring/adopting GUIX.

If there's such a beast floating around, could someone point me at it (and maybe add a prominent link at

If not... a polite suggestion to the team:  Nobody else can put something together, it's all too new, and you're the only folks who have the big picture.  Please share!
