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.

@AbbieNormal

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.
