A hook:Unfortunately, I wont be able to change your mind, so I’ll start to insult you immediately .
BlaBlaBla! Or if you are fan –be ready for the resistance! the SVN • Git is very fast (I’m fine even with speed) • Git has a local history (What shall I see there that I haven’t seen before???) • Git doesn’t need a server (Hey!!! But I WANT a server!) • Work with Github (Why one more SourceForge is needed?) • High-performance console commands (but I LOVE GUI)
«Distributed»is..• Your local computer can save ALL detailed information about your code;• And it’s actively using ALL this detailed information working with the code;• Your local computer can get MUCH MORE detailed information from other computers working on the same project.
GIT is a zip fastener!
Why the others haven’t thought it up?• Actually, someone had thought it up even before the version control systems appeared;• In Unix source codes used to be kept as a sequence of patch-files (patch routine);• Git — is not the only system, implementing this principle (Mercurial, Baazar, fossil,
