Comparing Git to Mercurial

Dustin has posted a great article comparing Git to Mercurial. He’s obviously used both extensively and gives a level headed, interesting look at how they differ.

Love the quote at the end:

Although mercurial may still feel nicer today, the change [to git] feels inevitable. This flood of people leaving centralized systems means that it’s way easier to contribute to their projects than ever before. This is the important part.

In the end, we all win either way.
