in thread Thoughts on Git, Mercurial, Github, and Bitbucket.
I was under the impression that people mean something more than just "offline commits" when they talk about how awesome a distributed VCS is.
Comparing to cvs is perhaps not quite right. Maybe it's better to compare with subversion (which is "cvs with better branching"), where branching and merging is easy. Sure, svn merges still have their problems, but they are minor.
