Comparing mercurial and Git

In the last post Comparing SVN and CVS, I had talked about major differences between SVN and CVS. In this post we will talk about difference between Git and Merucaial. In fact I have not used any of them but summarizing   the points from various sites and articles.

Scott’s take:

the majority of beginner to intermediate tasks that you have to do with a DSCM are very similar in both systems and being sufficiently familiar with one takes very little effort to use the other.


Another post by Patrick and he summarizes nicely :

it’s OK to proselytize to those who have not switched to a distributed VCS yet, but trying to convert a git user to Mercurial (or vice-versa) is a waste of everyone’s time and energy
