Guix is described as a package manager and a GNU/Linux distribution. While technically correct, this summary hides the fact that Guix is a valuable support tool for reproducible computational research, as an add-on to any GNU/Linux distribution, much like many of us currently use Docker containers. I will attempt to convince you that Guix is a better choice than Docker, and show you how to get started with integrating Guix into your computational work environment.
