I am going through my yearly “try out other DEs and neovim again” exercise and decided to implement it with nixos specialisations this time: https://search.nixos.org/options?channel=20.09&from=0&size=30&sort=relevance&query=specialisation
My understanding is that these are sort of like “runtime-system-profiles” so that you can switch between different configurations within a single generation. So, maybe by default I boot without any GUI configured, and then I “switch” into my
plasma specialisation based on how I feel (or which ones are actually working :P).
Anyway, the exercise has me curious, how many folks use specialisations? Do you have any particularly novel use-cases?
edit: I guess I might not be using specialisation for now: https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/issues/97255
