In reply to: Git rocks!
Parent article: Git 1.0.0 released
my 3 favorite things about git are
1. changesets (1 commit takes in the changes to multiple files)
Also true for svn, monotone, arch, mercurial, bazaar-ng, etc. Basically,
2. distributed development (you can hack and commit all day long on your
laptop with no network, sync up all the changesets later)
Also true for monotone, arch, mercurial, bazaar-ng, etc.
3. gitk: a simple, yet incredible visualization tool. I routinely
cvsimport code into git just so I can run gitk on it.
I hadn't seen this before... I like the look of that. (Though the
visualization aspect of that could be done for any of the distributed
tools since the underlying structure fits.)
git has some interesting aspects, don't get me wrong. I'm just wondering
if it's really better than monotone or bazaar-ng, the two options I find
to post comments)
