Those fancy “new” distributed version control systems

So we recently switched from TFS to SVN where I work. “Great!” I thought. But then I remembered reading about some other systems called “Mercurial” and “Git” somewhere. Systems that billed them self as “distributed”.

Reading Joel Spolskys final blog post ( I realized that that it was probably time to stop ignoring what I was reading and start investigating. I read a little about Git before, but what is prompting me to write this post is the informative and funny Mercurial tutorial put together by Mr. Spolsky and published on

I recommend anyone who is into this kind of thing to do them self “the favor of the day” and read, both Joel Spolskys final post (plus lot of he’s other posts of course 🙂 ) and his great Mercurial tutorial.
