Nice. With NixOS one can take Nix package manager and use Nix on Void or Ubuntu. Is that the same with Guix (I’ve tried a Guix install to hdd a few times in the past but didn’t have the patience to use it for long just like with NixOS, I find both very interesting though!) ?

Yes it is. You can also use nix on guix. Which I’m currently doing to use nix’s rust overlays.

Yes, Guix can be used as a standalone package manager. I have no experience with Nix so I can’t say how similar it is.

(Also a Guix System user, and have used the Guix package manager on my Mobian Pinephone)

Very cool! (btw, the article mentions that Guix looked at all kind of ideas of Nix, but with a significant difference in that Guix does use its own Lisp based language)

Lisp based language

it uses Guile which is a scheme that supports scheme standards (r5rs, r6rs, r7rs)

Guix is an advanced distribution of the GNU operating system developed by the GNU Project
