Tried building pantheon (the elementary front end) with nix on the pinebook and it failed due to missing arm dependencies.

Oh well. Maybe stock gnome?

Got sway/uxrvt/firefox working pretty easily.

Next up is fonts, sound and my editor.

So far my review of nix: works great till you run into a spot thats not well documented. If you are lucky you find existing nix configs or a blog post to help.

BUT doing sway.enable = true is pretty magical.
