    For example, these are the python versions and slots available on my system. The slots are on the left. I have dev-lang/python:2.7, dev-lang/python:3.5, dev-lang/python:3.6, and dev-lang/python:3.7 installed. =dev-lang/python-2.7.16 is listed as the latest version of python in the 2.7 slot.

    There are also sub-slots. https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Sub-slo...Slot-Operators

    Code:
    ~ $ eix dev-lang/python
    [I] dev-lang/python
         Available versions:
         (2.7)  2.7.15 (~)2.7.15-r1[1] (~)2.7.15-r108[1] (~)2.7.16
         (3.4)  (~)3.4.8-r2(3.4/3.4m)[1]
         (3.5)  3.5.5(3.5/3.5m)^t (~)3.5.5-r2(3.5/3.5m)^t[1] (~)3.5.7(3.5/3.5m)^t
         (3.6)  3.6.5(3.6/3.6m)^t (~)3.6.6-r1(3.6/3.6m)^t[1] (~)3.6.8(3.6/3.6m)^t
         (3.7)  (~)3.7.0-r1(3.7/3.7m)^t[1] (~)3.7.2(3.7/3.7m)^t (~)3.7.3(3.7/3.7m)^t

    Yes, why now? What's wrong with that? There are bechmarks that are not GPU centric you know

    I think you got the point, as anyone can expect by the FSF, this distro is totally counter-intuitive...

    I hope in a future derivative that makes it human usable...

    There's a bug so the paths are not set correctly by the installer. A new 1.0.1 release will be released soon. At least from what I heard from the devs on #guix

    Another non intuitive thing is that the 'graphical' front end is emacs-guix.

    This distro is quite difficult for my knowledge I was unable to achieve almost anything... And because the peculiar package manager it is not clear if you install the packages for root will work for any other users... So I have been messing up all the day without being able to install it with Xfce and some commands are missing or broken, for example the basic cli command "LS" didn't work even when I realized that the package coreutils was not installed by default... So I am quite confuse... But this distro is not even target power users...

    Yes, that isn't handled with Gentoo. Guix and Guix SD seems really quite good. Let's hope it does get good response and backing Perhaps even makes hardware vendors think a little extra and release open source drivers that works with the Libre kernel that GuixSD is using
