From http://www.russellbeattie.com/blog/distributed-revision-control-systems-git-vs-mercurial-vs-svn:

"A little exploration turned up that Linus' git stuff is a bit wonky in a lot of ways. It's a few c programs surrounded by a slew of scripts of varying quality, and not many tools for. Mercurial, on the other hand, tackles the same problems, but is written in Python, well supported, well documented and seems to have a lot of momentum in the OSS community.
