GNU Guix (English pronunciation: /ɡiːks/[2]) is a package manager for the GNU System. It is based on the Nix package manager with Guile Scheme APIs and specializes in providing exclusively free software.[3]

History[edit]

The GNU Project announced in November 2012 the first release of GNU Guix, a functional package manager based on Nix that provides, among other things, Guile Scheme APIs.[4] The project was started on June 2012 by Ludovic Courtès, one of the GNU Guile hackers.[5] On August 20, 2015, it was announced that Guix had been ported to GNU Hurd,[6] making it the first native package manager on the Hurd.[7]
