* doc/guix.texi (Binary Installation): In quotation, mention Debian,Ubuntu, and openSUSE.--- doc/guix.texi | 14 ++++++++++++++ 1 file changed, 14 insertions(+)
Hi!
For some users, it might be easier to install via Debian/Ubuntu/openSUSE,which might also handle the most important bits of “Application Setup”,so this patch mentions this option.
Thoughts?
