What's your preferred versioning system?

Postby silly freak » 29 Jan 2015, 09:52

I thought this might be an interesting question to ask here. I'm a fan of git, but there are a lot of people that dislike it. It woud be cool to know what you think. What are the reasons for your preference, or do you just use whatever is used in your community?

As I said, I prefer git. I like that you can work offline with it, and even without a central repository alltogether. Even if it's only a small experiment I use git, because it's no overhead to do so (no need to create a project on Google Code or similar). Especially for experiments, where I don't really know what I'm doing, having an overview of my changes is a great thing.

Git's way of storing things has even inspired a framework I'm currently working on: Harmonic, which tries to make it easier to synchronize multiple deterministic software engines (say, multiple instances of a game of Magic ;))

I only ever used SVN (mostly),git (barely, just in Forge's time between Google Code and Slightlymagic) and Visual Sourcesafe (shudder, the things one does for an internship).

I'm not savvy enough to find SVN lacking for my purposes, though I have heard many declare git superior.

Also, while you're here, update your blog, damn it. :P
