Bazaar vs. Mercurial : An unscientific comparison

coderman: repository initialization: hg 2.8x faster
coderman: adding files for committal: hg 2.4x faster
coderman: committing new files: hg 3x faster
coderman: commit an append line to every file: hg 2.3x faster
coderman: clone a repository: hg 4x faster
coderman: committing in the cloned branch: hg 2x faster
coderman: "... But what really made the performance numbers a huge difference was anything dealing with networking. "
coderman: Initialize remote repository: hg 2.8x faster
coderman: Push local repository to remote repository: hg 7.1x faster
coderman: Branch from remote repository: hg 1.9x faster
coderman: Push appended line change to server: hg 10.1x faster
coderman: Pull appended line change from server: hg 1.8x faster

Some time ago Flock had a brief affair with Mercurial (hg) during which I fell in love with its speed, terminology and versatility.

coderman: so I wrote hg-to-svn-submod to ease my pain.
est: Its workflow, unfortunately, turned out to be too foreign to enough of the developers that we scrapped it and went with the old standby Subversion.
coderman: "oh no you didnt, ho!"
coderman: seriously, nothing a little bash alias can't fix... ;P
coderman: totally shitty windows support is still a valid criticism. if you are forced to care about windows then hg is worthless

lemonodor: "I think that a radical life is not something that depends on Internet connections or websites or demos or even on politics, like having Green mayors. This may sound dull to people who think that having a really hot website is a revolutionary act. Or that getting a million people to come out and wave symbolic signs at a symbolic march is a political act. If it doesn’t involve alternative economic institution building,
lemonodor: "The Internet revealed itself as the perfect mirror image of global capital. It has no borders? Neither does global capital. Governments can’t control it? Neither can they control global capital. Nor do they want to. They’ve given up trying, and now they basically serve as the mercenary armed forces for the corporate interstate—the 200 or 300 megacorporations that actually run the world."
