I find Mercurial, inspired by the Monotone workflow, to be much better than Monotone though.

And it's blazing fast.

Yes it is, of course it is, distributed is a strict superset of centralised so everything you can do with a CVCS you can do better with a DVCS...

I found this talk to be quite interesting and I may end up using GIT for my next project. Thanks, Linus!

And BTW being distributed looks good, but it is not always affordable on commercial projects... Intermediate "experiments" or just activities kept in branches are centralized, which is good to share effort on an organized environment... not everybody can afford OpenSource...

But there have been tools out there pretty good on branches (yep, Perforce is not better either) like:
- Clearcase: yes, is big, is difficult, but, doesn't he claim to have written GIT for "clever people", cc is for clever people too.
- Accurev: just visit accurev dot com and enjoy the experience.
And a big number of other good alternatives: plasticscm, hansky, seapine

I know the guy is just playing his role in a show (is there any difference between Linusboy and BillG??? ok, the second one is rich).
Then I totally agree about the point of branching: yes, branching is pretty good, CVS is horrible on branches, and SVN is crap too.

I'm totally shocked by the lame show! First Linus' total disrespect to commercial tools: "get rid of Perforce", and also to "everything else not done by me" with sentences like "subversion is the most pointless project ever started".
