      I think nixpkgs earned lots of attention now based on the amount of its contributors, compared to many other distributions it's attracting much more contribution.
      But I myself use Guix on top of Fedora, Guix has a well defined language to work with. Nix requires me to write a weird DSL along with bash script, and I can't even get code highlighting to work correctly on these languages...
