From the perspective of someone at the other end of the experience curve, I found Git almost impenetrable - I'm learning French right now (and I'm not a young whipper snapper), Git is harder than an entirely new language as far as I'm concerned.
I would guess that if I broke through that outer shell and was already experienced with VCS concepts then Git would be the best choice - it's an assumption since why else would so many people and companies flock to it? I am guessing that the complexity pays back later when you have lots of contributors, branches etc. and maybe Bazaar, Mercurial etc. aren't so capable at that stage..., I have no idea, but there must be some reason!
However, the most frequent comment I see and which tallies with my own experience, is "If it was my choice I'd use Mercurial".
Mercurial is so much easier to get your head around, hugely helped by TortoiseHg, from total novice to functional in minutes not years.
Wasn't going to do it again cause none of you are playing along anymore(don't blame you it's sh*t). But couldn't resist this Gem.[^]
I mean she honestly believes the School are in the wrong for not feeding her children, when she must knowingly send them to School day after day without a Packed Lunch or money to buy one. The comments are quite amusing particularly as the Mum in question turns up with the handle 'Tegs' but soon disappears when she gets rumbled. The look on the kids faces(obviously told by the snapper to look sad) is priceless too.

Don't be too rough on the police. They did handle the temple shooting a short while back. Of course, the community newspaper neglected to cover it much. The only story related to it was titled "A CommUNITY Meeting[^]", which should by its title alone tell you that it isn't exactly hard-hitting journalism.
Last week (I think) DD was talking about a tax dodge where you buy something for an inflated price to move the money out of the company.
Sounds like a good way to get LARTed if you ever find yourself on the receiving end of an audit.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
