Thank you for this presentation, it's really great!

There are some minor points that could be improved. In the beginning, you give 
a link to the documentation. I would rather give a link to the devel version.
Guix has no meaning, it's pronounced as geeks, but that's not the meaning (it's 
actually a contraction of guile and nix).

The daemon is not written in guile (though that's something we'd like to have), 
but in C++. The build side (the isolated bit) is indeed a guile process.

MES stands for Maxwell Equations of *Software* :). Mes is actually way bigger 
than 400 bytes. You're refering to the stage0 project I think.

I'm glad you're referencing guix home manager (I'm the author :)). It's 
somewhat separate from user services, though I'd like to have that too. I don't 
really see a need for that yet for myself, so it might not happen in the near 
future. We'll see!

Thanks again for tharing this, your enthusiasm is really visible, which makes 
me very happy :D
