Re: I blame the source code management...

Still, it's worth remembering that Git was absolutely written in anger. Linux was developed using BitKeeper as the version control system until the sudden announcement that all versions of BitKeeper would now have to be paid for. Days later Linus released the first version of Git.

He has later claimed that it was a light-hearted bit of self-deprecation and, like Linux, it is named after him. I don't believe him.
