2009-01-08 Thursday - Git vs. Subversion?

Git Home: git-scm.com

Several senior level developers in my professional network have adopted Git as their source code management system. I haven't had much time to investigate/evaluate Git, but I am interested in learning more about it. This posting will be my placeholder for my Git research.

Git was originally created by Linus Torvalds to replace BitKeeper as the version control system for the Linux kernel.

My initial conclusion is that the relative lack of maturity of Git integration in popular IDEs is the limiting factor in my consideration of whether to adopt Git.
