I am Alex a.k.a Ari, live in Europe work as researcher and do a lot of coding in Data Science (AI and MK) and “experimenting” with operating systems, mostly RedHat OS (left MS Win 2009, one year after it mac, since 2010 full Linux). As core OS for work I use always (no plan for a change for now) Fedora / Red Hat / CentOS or Scientific Linux, but for testing and experimenting I have tried a lot: debian, ubuntu, linux
mint, popos, pureos, suse, clearlinux intel, gentoo still testing arch. while testing silverblue fedora I read about nixos, tried it yesterday and I am impressed by the uniqie packaage managment system.
back on Sunday at work for more NixOS time (silverblue fedora OS+Nix pkg manager with DE:i3 or bspwm) true power of Linux and FOSS, the freedom and option to choose.
My specific question and interest is any specific native build NixOS apps for Data Science, data mining or ML/AI, or any advice based on experience or practice in that field in NixOS would be of use to me.
EDIT: this is a great community and respect to the entire nix team+community for the wonderful job.
Live Long and Prosper
