Yes. I actually started using Nix from Slackware. Which means, by
definition, installation from scratch is "trivial". I can see the value
in doing an installation on your own because you do have absolute
control over the version/options of the packages.
I guess my reluctance against compiling is that I have little interest
in tuning development box and going through the nuances of
configuration. And as such -- plug & chug seems easy.
I think I found my answer though -- DIY. It's the control and knowing I
have all the binaries and source code I need to. now, wish me luck!
I might be back on the list really soon...
