Where has the meme about Git not being suitable for the corporate environment come from?
There's nothing that makes it any less suitable than any other revision control system. You can have
a central repository that everyone pushes to, and anyone who keeps things in private repos for too
long without pushing is no different than anyone keeping changes in private checkouts for too long
without pushing in any other revision control system.
What IDEs have Mercurial plugins but not Git at the moment?
And what does it mean for something to be "too powerful"? I've always found more powerful
tools to be preferable to less capable ones. "Too confusing" or "too dangerous" might be valid
criticisms, and might be what you're trying to imply, but being powerful does not necessarily imply
them. I have found Git to be a bit confusing for inexperienced developers at times, but never found
it to be particularly dangerous, as you almost always have some form of history you can revert to if
you make a mistake.
