Hi Simone,

Well the really gneat distro on which guix works best is the guix system :p

Seriously, if that's not an option, then any other distro will work. Guix is 
designed to be completely isolated from any other package manager, so no bad 
interaction is possible. The only thing you have to remember is to not mix 
package sources in a development project.

For a list of distros we could recommend, see the list of fully free distros on
