Does nixos have one?
There is no roadmap, but i think it would help the project to have one.
I had a discussion about that 2 days ago: davidak: "@firstname.lastname@example.org yes, we should be…" - chaos.social
there are rough edges around FHS binaries and wine games that I’d love to see working.
There are a lot of rough edges, but we have an active community and it get’s better with every release!
You might be able to run FHS binaries with
steam-run. There is also
According to that, Wine should work.
For games, Steam with Proton might work better. There is also protontricks, lutris and playonlinux, but look for open issues on GitHub, they might not work properly.
Does nixos ever think that no this is not my target audience? (Realistically only programmers are but I think effort towards changing that may not be fruitful) .
I always say it’s for “advanced linux users”, but i would also like it to be more user friendly.
There are discussions about that: User-friendly NixOS distro?
A big topic in that regard is improving the documentation: Documentation improvements
What are currently things that nixos wouldn’t do well? I think most production people using Debian for security and stability would hesitate to use nixos.
Good question. There is an open issue on that topic: Update State of NixOS · Issue #285 · NixOS/nixos-homepage · GitHub
I think it’s pretty stable and security is also quiet good. I use it on all of my desktop systems and servers. But we need more contributors to create, update and merge packages. I think debian or arch have way more, so it’s even more impressive how far we got with our approach.
