On the download page there is a VirtualBox appliance available. For other distributions I would not be interested in this kind of user experience because I would assume it gives me a system with a lot of things pre-installed that I might not want and somehow in a hard to understand state. However, given that declarative installation is the main thing of NixOS, maybe this is different.
Could somebody comment on how easy it would be to do a “re-install” of that appliance from within? I think such a thing is possible with NixOS, right?
I would like to know if there is anything like that in that appliance. And if people would recommend it anyway as a first NixOS experience.
