I set it up on my laptop as an experiment, and am greatly enjoying using it: it's nice to work on a modern, well thought-out distribution in its early stages, with lots of opportunities to contribute.

The ease by which you can manage and roll-out new configurations means that it's slowly spreading to other systems I manage.

It's also interesting to work on a distribution that takes the GNU project seriously: the developers default to using GNU software where possible, and are clearly striving to make a coherent operating system out of its parts. This is less an ideological position than it sounds -- there's a lot of gold buried in nearly half a century of GNU work, and I've enjoyed learning about it all, and seeing how the Guix team go about improving and modernising it.
