in thread Thoughts on Git, Mercurial, Github, and Bitbucket.

Both git and mercurial (and darcs for that matter) are huge improvements over centralized SCMs like SVN. You could argue for days which one to use, and won't get any conclusive results.
This. git and Mercurial are pretty much equivalent.

I wouldn't use Darcs, because it has (had?) huge performance problems with large repositories, and doesn't seem to have enough developers. There's also Bazaar, but it is terrible. (Emacs adopted it some time ago, and someone quickly created a git gateway.)

[Corion]: marto: You mean "Sane Dots Dramatic Reading of ITIL" ? ;)
[marto]: Sane Dots, chapter 13: ITIL never work :P
[marto]: sorry, bad pun of it'll :P
[Corion]: :-D
[Corion]: I think that ITIL is mostly to prevent people from doing harm to a system that basically runs unattended :)
[Corion]: Maybe you could reduce ITIL to a computer network, a man and a dog. The network runs the computations. The man is there to feed the dog. The dog is there to prevent the man from accessing the computers.
