FWIW, I've been successfully running GuixOS on non-libre systems for about four
years now. Highly recommended. Granted, I also run the nix-daemon service to
fill in some gaps in packages in the rare instances it's needed.

I haven't tried GuixOS yet myself, but I've heard it described as "Nix the package manager but with Guile instead of Nix the language." Are there any benefits to Guix over Nix that you've found (other than the obvious superiority of Lisp, of course ;) )? Is evaluation of expressions faster? That's definitely the Achilles heel of Nix proper for anything complicated (like a monorepo build system--don't ask me how I know).
