Richard is right, this is not a correct forum. You should have posted this in The Lounge, where people can discuss this with you. The sole purpose of this forum 'Free Tools' is to list out free tools that you find useful. Also it is defined at the top clearly that don't post reviews or links to the reviews, just the link to the 'Free Tool' and your two cents on why/how you find it useful.

...anyways, back to the debate.

Bit's Merging is Broken

No, you need to define your own process of merging for your team, to avoid that kind of issues, it is not Git's problem. Many people use Git just for this one feature - 'hassle free merge'.

Git uses the wrong Vocabulary

I don't see how this is a problem. Every software has its own style and personality. You need to adopt it.

Git Requires Extra Steps

It feels like extra steps because you and me are not managing project with thousands of contributors. When someone is managing Linux Kernel, they need these extra steps to ensure integrity of their code base.

Let the flames commence.

Everyone has their own opinion, and I am not trying to defend Git, I use different source control system based on the project and team size.

And you forgot to mention the better alternative to Git. If you don't have any solution then this is a useless rant. Smile | :)
