Nix isn’t commonly known or mentioned on Lobsters, but I thought it would be nice to inform you there’s a 2.0 release available with many new features or improvements (merge of
nix-* commands into single
nix binary, security improvements, cleaning old/redundant features to simplify the whole concept, etc.)
To spark a discussion, let me know - have you ever used a Nix as a sole package/environment manager, or NixOS as a Linux distribution (production, desktop…)? Do you have any stories or opinions related to it?
