I am in the process of writing a small series of articles titled: "A layman's introduction to NixOS". What would you want to read in this series?
@mzumquadrat Why it exists and what's special about it -- compared to something mainstream like Ubuntu.
@mzumquadrat I've heard of NixOS and afaik it's really customizable and uses nix files to get your machine running. My only real experience is with Debian based distros.
I don't particularly know what I'd like in the series, don't know what I don't know type thing, but I'm open to be a layman reader for you 😅
@tychi @mzumquadrat i agree with this, especially "don't what I don't know". NixOS is a word I see pop up every now and again and tbh I have no idea what it is apart from something the cool kids are talking about. So I'd be interested in reading about the what and why it is cool/useful/better/powerful. Possible reasons for/against for different use cases.
@robby This will come later in the series. I am currently a layman myself so i am planning to grow with the series. :)
@mzumquadrat Nice, can you add a RSS Feed on your blog?
Hey, thank you for your suggestion, but I am afraid that this isn't easily doable since my blog has no real state management. I have no way of knowing which article is new or when it has been added.
