>(It shows that the poster hasn't ever tried git)

The poster's signature is "Director of Subversion", so regardless of whether he's actually tried git, he has some incentive to make comments like this.

Yes, it's a very subversive comment.

It is true that the biggest jump from centralized version control to distributed is mental; this guy clearly doesn't get it. It is also true that the best way to make the jump is by using it. It quite irresponsible to speak about the competition without having used and understood their projects.

You should see LinkedIn's "Git Community". There are folks whose main purpose in being there appears to be (to me anyway; they may disagree!) to spread a bit of FUD around. Nothing overt, but enough that someone who does not know git, reading some of those posts, will think twice about switching from their 1000-seat commercial license.

And yes, most of those guys have designations similar to the one we're talking about here. And they're from companies that have been around a few years and have (I imagine) a sizable chunk of CVCS using customers. (Curiously I never see a "developer" or "development manager" from those places. It's always a "marketing director" or "business development manager" or some such!)

At the moment only I and one other person seem to respond with any regularity. No idea if there just aren't enough neutral+clueful persons there or there are but they don't care or they don't see it as a problem.

Would be nice if any of you folks with linkedin accounts would join up, keep an eye on the traffic, and respond once in a while!
