Re: Nix fixes dependency hell on all Linux distributions

Well, you may know nix, but you sure don't know open-source. This whole discussion of which package manager is better to install binary packages is idiotic in an open-source world. Slackware has it right; provide a solid development environment by default, a set of tools to make building packages from source fast and easy, and take care of your own dependencies.
