All the cool kids are into Git these days and I’ve been reading plenty of articles about how good it is and how to use it. The problem is, I don’t really have a problem with Subversion. I know I should, because all the cool kids do, but I just don’t run into a lot of issues with it. In the absence of a problem to solve it would simply be peer-pressure to give Git a shot.
Actually mainly it’s because Mercurial seems significantly simpler, and I’m a simple guy. It’s also written in Python, which gives me a warm and fuzzy. And I’m finally motivated to try it because I’m going to try a code path which may not work out, and I understand these distributed systems deal with that well.
If I’m making a mistake and I should go with Git, or perhaps CVS, do let me know.
