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.
