“User-land distribution” means that it provides packages for user-land
software that can be installed on top of a running GNU/Linux system.
Currently it includes just ~100 packages, including the GNU libc, GCC,
Coreutils, and Guile.

The goal is to eventually make it a bootable, stand-alone distribution.
See <http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/gnu-system-discuss/2012-11/msg00000.html>
and <http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/guix.git/tree/ROADMAP> for details.
