Re(1): Nix fixes dependency hell on all Linux distributions

The problem is, the added packages are really NOT integrated with your existing system, and other packages (except those installed with Nix) can't use them by default. You will then have to remember which packages are installed with which package manager.

There is usually a reason why the distro has version XYZ of a particular program, which you will have to install as well if it is needed as a dependency inside the distro.
