There once was a biz called Bitbucket, that told Mercurial to suck it. Now devs are dejected, their code soon ejected

Re: Only 3% use Mercurial

OK, Atlassian figure that financially it makes sense to lose all their Mercurial users. I don't like that, but they're a business.

But how are Atlassian going to differentiate themselves from Github in the future?

3% is a small number, but we're still pissed off and since we have to convert everything anyway we may as well change hosts while we're doing so. Was anyone else, particularly in the corporate world, holding back from putting their Git repository on BitBucket *because* they didn't like the support for Mercurial as well?

I predict Bitbucket becoming the "Mini Me" to Microsoft's GitHub
