Information about NixOS 19.09

NixOS is an independently developed GNU/Linux distribution that aims to improve the state of the art in system configuration management. In NixOS, the entire operating system, including the kernel, applications, system packages and configuration files, are built by the Nix package manager. Nix stores all packages in isolation from each other; as a result there are no /bin, /sbin, /lib or /usr directories and all packages are kept in /nix/store instead. Other innovative features of NixOS include reliable upgrades, rollbacks, reproducible system configurations, source-based model with binaries, and multi-user package management. Although NixOS is a research project, it is a functional and usable operating system that includes hardware detection, KDE as the default desktop, and systemd for managing system services.

NixOS is an independently developed distribution that aims to improve the state of the art in system configuration management. In NixOS, the entire operating system, including the kernel, applications, system packages and configuration files, are built by the Nix package manager. The project has released version 19.09 of NixOS which provides approximately six months of support. "In addition to numerous new and upgraded packages, this release has the following highlights. End of support is planned for end of April 2020, handing over to 20.03. PHP now defaults to PHP 7.3, updated from 7.2. PHP 7.1 is no longer supported due to upstream not supporting this version for the entire lifecycle of the 19.09 release. The binfmt module is now easier to use. Additional systems can be added. The installer now uses a less privileged nixos user whereas before we logged in as root. To gain root privileges use sudo -i without a password. Weve updated to Xfce 4.14. There are incompatibilities with the current Xfce module; it doesnt support thunarPlugins. The GNOME 3 desktop manager module sports an interface to enable/disable core services, applications and optional GNOME packages like games.
