Haha! I have to read at-least 3 threads to recall what we were talking about. Smile | :)

Mercurial is a great alternative. I have used it for over a year. Even I have spent 4 days trying to setup a customized web interface for it (using hgWeb and crazy amount of HTML / CSS coding). It was kind of waste of time, but It was lot of fun!

But the main problem with the Mercurial was the less-popularity among 3rd party tools. Which is why I transferred over to Git, most of the other software integrate perfectly with the Git, but not with the Mercurial. But if you are not going to use it with any other tools than no problem.

We are currently using Team Foundation Online, which supports both TFS and Git, and Git is definitely better than TFS. (Also most of the Bug Tracking software integrate just fine with Git)

Nah, stick around, we do this kind of behavior almost every time we go into 'DEBATE MODE'. You will get over it after a while, and then you can do the same thing to others... Smile | :)

This post has come out of my management choosing Git and telling my business unit that we must use it.

That sucks! specially when they want you to adopt a completely different product without your vote. But now your management can brag about using it, plus they will look technically competent.

I guess you are right, your post was kind of a review. But then you attacked every geek's favorite version control tool so we had to retaliate. Big Grin | :-D
