Re: I liked Mercurial better. Glad I went with Git
Nah, I don't flatter myself I could have beaten back the tide of the network effect, if that's what it was. The best product can still win, if it's a free choice. I think in the case of Git vs. Mercurial, it was ecosystem factors like Github that pushed it over the edge.
Anyway, Mercurial may have been easier to learn, but having used it since, I think Git has proved the more versatile DSCS.
