I’ve been working with the FogBugz bug tracker for quite a while now and I noticed that they offer a Mercurial based online version control system named Kiln.
I’ve been wanting to adopt one of these new-fangled distributed version control systems for some time now, so I decide to dive in and find out what all the fuss was about.
I read Joel Spolsky‘s excellent Mercurial tutorial, Hg Init and then set about installing Mercurial clients on all of my various workstations.
I ended up with TortoiseHG on my PC and MacHg on my Mac and so far I’m finding it to be a very flexible and easy to use system.
If you’re using Subversion or some other old-school version control system you should definitely take a look at Mercurial or GIT and see what you’re missing out on!
