There's a New Package Manager in Town
Every now and again a project springs forth to tout the advantages of a generic or all-distribution package manager. A one-size-fits-all approach was the Holy Grail of Linux for a while and several ideas came and went silent. However, hope springs again and Guix is its name.
Ludovic Courtès introduced the new project Friday with his post to the new Guix mailing list. In it he explained since Guix is approaching its first alpha release, it was time to meet the public.
