General...and that's the problem with Git PinmemberMike-MadBadger19-Feb-13 8:06 
...for me anyway (minor rant alert)
 
The Insider News post today, Learn-Git-Branching-an-Interactive-Tutorial[^], really? If you need to explain in that level of detail how to use one of the most basic concepts then something can't be right.
 
OK, I'm no expert at all in version control and maybe 'I just don't get it', (whatever it is), but for love nor money I can't understand how something that's so hard to use gained so much traction so quickly when alternative systems that also have the distributed advantage, are also OS, have better UI options etc. etc. are freely available and are also actively developed etc.
 
Maybe Git just doesn't fit the way my head works but I've seen so many similar comments and there are so many sites offering basic guidance on how to do the most simple things that I'm certainly not alone!
 
What think thee?
