Re: This'll give ya whiplash

What I find interesting are all of the recommendations for mercurial
or git or other "modern distributed systems" (to use their words).
When you look at actual adoption, those other systems aren't doing
nearly as well as subversion? Why? They don't really fit the typical
corporate model, the typical ability of most programmers and their
tool use (raise your hand if you've heard of dev teams *not* using
source control!), nor are they as easy to learn. Quite powerful, with
some neat tricks, and some great tech behind it, but not something
you'd really want to blindly recommend to people.

Oh yeah... watch out DVCS's .... I'm gonna add offline commits to svn,
and write a revlog-backed repository. It'll take me a while, but I'll
get there... Then let's look at feature/function deltas!
Bwahahahaaaa!!

Cheers,
