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.
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,

My actual experience:• Total number of files processed in both CTP3 and CTP5 codebases is around four thousand each;• Total number of objects merged is 1170;• Total number of conflicting files is 140;• Еhe rate of successful merge is about 88% (1170 – 140) / 1170 * 100 = 88%;• Most of conflicts are trivial;• None-trivial — conflicts in about 20 files;
