      Switched from Arch to NixOS a couple of weeks ago. Deep learning curve but very much worth it if you want something reproducible with generational + atomic updates and the ability to mix and match different software versions together without issue. I never have to worry about breaking my OS again

          Uh, same here. Didn't work at first as my hardware was too new, but I switched to the unstable channel and then magically things came together. Now I can probably switch back to stable.

            Once I am fluent with their lisp dialect I might be tempted to completely switch over to nixos. It's not like that I am missing outlandish packages in standard repos

              Nix does not use Lisp. Are you thinking of Guix (the same approach and a fork of Nix, but using Scheme)?

                NixOS gets better with every release.

                  This should work even on stable:
                  Code:
                  boot.kernelPackages = pkgs.linuxPackages_latest;

                    Ah, I tried that, too.
                    Booting was fine, amdgpu however was too old. And the latest kernel didn't build Nvidia drivers (stupid proprietary stuff, but I still need that until I use this card).
