NixOS is a great operating system, perhaps the best in my opinion. However, it is inherently targeted towards devs and doesn’t want to target towards not-much-aware end-users, nor should it.
Now, I, personally, see great potential in it, “even”… or especially for this purpose - a reliable, graphical desktop with minimal knowledge or configuration. Sounds ridiculous, right? But I actually believe in it.
I would like to create a NixOS “fork”. This would not actually be a typical fork, the Nix ecosystem allows us to reuse pretty much all the code that is already there. I would add overlays including managing the system with https://github.com/pmiddend/nixos-manager by default, Calamares installer, potentially more.
What I actually have so far is pretty much nothing - a logo, a name, and a GitHub org - but should be enough to ‘get started’ and I welcome all your input on this.
Why the CirnOS name? Isn’t it copyrighted or something?
Cirno is indeed a character in the Touhou universe but I don’t think there would be a better name for a hackjob that I’m conceptualizing right now ^^ ZUN/Shanghai Alice are incredibly lax with copyright, this can be changed anyway if it becomes an issue.
