How does ArX compare to Bazaar ( ?

I have found tla to be utter braindead user-interface-wise, but bazaar is much, much better (although not even close to perfect yet). If I only had tla to work with, I would never have adopted arch for my work...

As far as I can tell, Bazaar is new, sane, UI on top of arch, while ArX is a different implementation with different goals. In particular, you can use bazaar with arch repos; I don't think the same is true of ArX.

Note that bazaar is not just a new command line interface on top of tla. There have been a number of new features added, such as a more intelligent merge algorithm that doesn't get confused in the presence of merge loops. There have been a number of performance improvements too, that reduce the number of round trips needed when updating from a remote archive (provided the revisions were committed with baz).
