- Liberating. Guix is an advanced distribution of the GNU operating system developed by the GNU Project—which respects the freedom of computer users.
- Dependable. Guix supports transactional upgrades and roll-backs, unprivileged package management, and more. When used as a standalone distribution, Guix supports declarative system configuration for transparent and reproducible operating systems.
- Hackable. It provides Guile Scheme APIs, including high-level embedded domain-specific languages (EDSLs) to define packages and whole-system configurations.
Guix comes with thousands of packages which include applications, system tools, documentation, fonts, and other digital goods readily available for installing with the GNU Guix package manager.

GNU Guix in other GNU/Linux distros
If you don't use GNU Guix as a standalone GNU/Linux distribution, you still can use it as a package manager on top of any GNU/Linux distribution. This way, you can benefit from all its conveniences.
Guix won't interfere with the package manager that comes with your distribution. They can live together.
