When I was first learning about DRCS the docs were slim and the human explanations were even slimmer so I started collecting my favorite sources as I went along. Hopefully this will help convince your teammates as well that DRCS is here to say! No problem.

They're almost all different beasts now. I started using Git full time again last week and it definitely still had the same interface issues compared to Mercurial. I haven't used Bazaar at all for quite some time and haven't tried Mercurial v1.0 yet (I still use 0.9.5 every day).<br><br>If the changes are enough to negate my opinions about each system, I will totally write about it. I still think Mercurial, despite being one of the youngest, has the most potential. Git would have to revamp the entire command line interface to catch up in my opinion.

Does anybody know of any unbiased comparison of the *current* versions of git, GNU Bazaar and Mercurial?

All I’ve seen is rather old (DVCS are young and changing quickly).
Bazaar is now pretty fast, git is becoming easy to use and crossplatform, Mercurial has reached v1.0…

Do you have much experience with it? Any comments about it? I’ve hear quite a bit about darcs (most DRCS emacs modes are based on the darcs mode) though I’ve never used it myself.
