    NixOS fits perfectly to DigitalOcean. Please support it!

    You can now install NixOS on Digital Ocean droplets using https://github.com/jeaye/nixos-in-place

    NixOS empowers users with declarative configuration management. Since the operating system is built from the ground up using Nix, NixOS brings some things to the table that configuration managers (like Ansible) like atomic upgrades and rollbacks. This makes NixOS nice to maintain and friendly for DevOps.

    I would be happy to see NixOS added to the list of images to choose from.

    NixOS is especially well suited to be deployed in an environment like Digital Ocean.

    +1 on that. I'd really like to see NixOS support.

    Not sure if that other issue solves it as I think NixOS requires a custom kernel, right?
