    NixOS is an amazing solution for a problem that doesn't exist.

      Seems like it could be super useful in a corporate environment where you maintain a fleet. I don't know why people run it on a single machine, though.

        People use it on a single machine to escape the inevitable breakage in rolling release distros and at the same time avoid admitting that point release distros were right all along.

        Nixgays and Genpootards have literally never heard of /usr/local and /opt.

        You are wasting your entire life solving problems that were solved long ago.

          >just use this .appimage that packs a program with its gazillion dependencies dude
          and when you have two .appimage with the same dependency, you are creating bloat here, when the dependency could have been installed in one place so two programs could use it instead of having multiple copies
          >purity
          >A total non fricking problem
          oh yeah, I guess that's why normal distros use chroot (or at worst VM) just to compile a package so that the package will not detect the installed libraries, thus making it reproducible

          Look, are you saying you met a large amount of programmers that use Ubuntu? My post was to inform you that despite what you think, you are unimportant and so is your argument. ad nauseum popularum publicam non sequitor

    I used to use ubuntu as a desktop because my servers were also ubuntu but now that I build in the cloud, I've moved back to debian.

    nobody uses those.
    most kernel devs use fedora.
    everyone else debian.
    script kiddies use arch tho.

    Ubuntu for those who don't want to try new things, it comes on the company laptops that come with Linux and it's good enough for most use cases
    Never seen nixOS out in a the wild. Usually I see it in cloud environments. I have seen shops use the nix package manager though.
    I have never seen any company use slackware anywhere. I would be curious where OP sees slackware being used in any industry. What company names, what industries at all.

    Programming in NixOS is fricking annoying. I settled in OpenSUSE.
