    My nix configuration(s), using flakes. It's my laptop, it's my servers, it's my everything, in code. (by MatthewCroughan)

    Project mention: Take the Nix Pill | | 2022-07-08

    Go to and come to your own conclusion. I've argued with hundreds of people about this, and I don't want to start again. Just have fun! For one thing, every machine I have is defined as infrastructure as code here, and it's reproducible That's impressive. If you don't think so, then you probably don't need Nix, and may not appreciate what it does. You can read the Nix Thesis if you want more of a technical understanding. I also recommend reading for a background on why reproducibility matters and congruency matters.
