[FEATURE REQUEST] Add NixOS to official distribution list

Title says it all. I'd really love to see Linode support NixOS as an official distribution. The NixOS declarative method is perfect for cloud hosted servers. I know you can install any OS through a VERY appreciated method Linode provides us but there are some drawbacks to that approach.

Here's a link on how to install a custom distribution for those that stumble on this post and didn't already know about it.

@longtimelistener Thanks for the suggestion! I've recorder your feedback in our internal tracker for future consideration. That being said, I don't have an ETA on when or if this suggestion will be implemented.

Have a great day!

@rdaniels Thanks for replying to this community post!
I too enjoy this suggestion. I am an avid NixOS user and would find myself easily deploying more services, with NixOS' intuitive deployment features!

In my eyes, it ought simply be an additional image, one can choose. The rest can be up to the user to configure. There are already ways people deploy NixOS on Linode. I hope this feature is implemented swiftly.

Have a great day!
