Darcs vs Git: mathematician versus engineer

Nablaone summarizes (in Polish) today’s presentations at TechAula about distributed version control systems. Precisely, he wrote about main difference between Darcs and Git—being the difference between science and engineering:

Darcs represents what’s best in the science, beautiful ideas and loooooong waiting for the reply, approaching infinity. Git, on the other hand, represents engineering—down-to-earth, mundane, hairy duct-tape-driven architecture, responding within seconds.

Choice between darcs and git is simple.  We study darcs, we use git. :-)

Having used both of this system—Darcs extensively, now mostly switched to Git—I can’t help but agree.
