Nix provides a complete and consistent development environment
With Nix, a build process only has access to dependencies that have been declared explicitly. So if a build succeeds, you know you've specified all necessary dependencies.
The same build process specification can be used to start a development environment (optionally augmented with additional development tools).
You will no longer have to hear: But it works on my machine!
