Sorry for the confusion.

I said "misleading" in the sense that it's used for various purposes - Using checkout you can:

  • Create a branch (with the -b flag)

Now, you can use git switch and git restore to avoid such confusion with the checkout command - switch -c creates a branch, switch switches to a branch, and restore is for reverting.

Yeah that makes more sense! I get what you are saying and I agree that having the specific command is much clearer. I'm still a little thrown off by the experimental part of the command. All in due time I suppose :)
