Picking a SCM

I needed a SCM and I knew there were some others out there besides CVS and SVN.

I did some searching and what it comes down to is that every SCM program has it’s supporters that will tell you that there choice is the best.
I looked at the big open source projects to see what they were using and that limited my choices a bit, I couldn’t really find a lot of projects using Mercurial, bzr.
I decided to go with git and so far it’s been a bumpy ride

I don’t have a lot of experience with SCM and that contributes to the bumpy ride, but I’m not giving up and I have solved some major issues by myself, I couldn’t clone my main repository anymore for example. I’ll keep posting about my experience with git.
