If your project is related (even remotely) to empowerment and protection of the user, you've got high chances of getting a grant. Go for it! :)

@mousebot@mastodon.social @AbbieNormal While Guix is currently not very accessible to non-experts, I intend to
work on graphical user interfaces to help alleviating this issue.
Hopefully Guix will be as straightforward to use as any other
familiar distribution!

@Shamar Hi! I understand the bewilderment: I believe the Joint Statement has little to do with Guix itself and does not belong to the website. I'm not on the list myself and I can only be sure that Guix will go on, regardless of the statement. I hope this reassures you and does not deter you from using this wonderful program/concept/OS :)


Regarding Emacs: you might be surprised, I've actually got a couple of non-programmer friends to use it. With minimal configuration (e.g. CUA bindings), it gets the job done.

Git: There is Git Kraken and it does an amazing job, some non-programmer friends have no problem using it. I didn't mention it in the article since it's non-free.

Guix: It mostly needs an easy-to-use interface for package management, then anyone can use it. I'd like to work on it in the months to come.


Thanks, glad you like it!

The admitted goal of the article is to raise the bar, hence the recommendations with a somewhat steep learning curve.
