Nix fixes dependency hell on all Linux distributions

Most of the comments on this page are very ignorant. I've been using Nix and NixOS (the accompanying operating system which /does/ exist) for the last six months as my primary computing environment. Admittedly, the article does not explain the full power and underlying semantics of the system. Before judging the entire system with platitudes checkout the actual Nix documentation. There are /significant/ advantages and drawbacks to the system - neither of which seem to be adequately addressed here.
