Re: Why not Git?

"even better..." hmm.

I want to depend on my SCM tool, see it maintained, evolved, supported on all platforms, integrated with all IDEs. This is a critical piece of my toolchest.

From what I understand, GIT is maintained for Linux, supported for kernel development, and integrated with vi. From my understanding this is all that Linux cares about.

Even if a Windows version is "near", what about all the other stuff? Eclipse integration. Integration with task trackers e.g. Trac. Scalability to multiple inter-related projects.
Windows support is just one piece out of many.

In the end the future will tell which was a better choice. Currently I trust Mercural more than GIT for being the universal, flexible, and powerful tool that I want.
