      I feel like this is a well-balanced take on why Nix was useful for FlightAware’s use case. I’m interested in Nix, but it hasn’t always been a good solution to the specific problems I was facing, so I haven’t had as much chance to get hands-on experience with it as I’d like.

      Does this mean that FlightAware no longer uses FreeBSD, or is this on other infrastructure?

        I can’t answer that question, but Nix the language/package manager exists on FreeBSD, though support in nixpkgs is not ideal(since nixpkgs is chock full of bash and Linuxisms).
