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...
