Nix fixes dependency hell on all Linux distributions

lol GOBOLINUX. I can run different versions of the same software. I can uninstall simply by deleting the file. Similar to how Mac OS X is run. All applications are in the Apps folder. Simple. Logical. Separated. Clean.
Good thing other linuces are getting closer. This kind of reminds me of Mac OS vs. Windows 1.0 -Windows XP. How every version of Windows is like Mac '85. Until Gobolinux's method is adopted by every Linux as the de facto standard, then Linux will always be a hobbyist platform with no chance for desktop acceptance.
