Is it recommended to use on my install before jumping into ?

@karmanyaahm I would recommend it, start playing with it and getting familiar with it right now. And then the transition would be much easier. At least that how it was for me.

By the way, take benefits of reproducibility, configure your NixOS in a virtual machine inside your Arch and then just take this config and replicate it on your real hardware (with minor hardware-specific adjustments). That would be a fun experience, to see the actual magic.


I'd also recommend try nix with Arch. I am also using Guix with parabola... And apart from system tools all my software comes from guix. I am planning to do a full guix install soon.
