re: Thank you for your comment. What overhead are we talking about? If we are talking space, Git takes up much less. Ref: git.wiki.kernel.org/index.ph...

I actually started with CVS, slowly adapted SVN and I found myself in the VCS wars only a little later. I had to work with Git at my previous workplace, I killed my code more often than not thanks to Git's weird branching...

To each their own, I guess.

Yeah. Branching concepts are bit different. In Git, a branch simply means a pointer to a commit while in SVN it means a copy (shallow) of a trunk (with ancestry information).

I had to use SVN about a year ago on a project and I was not a fan of how commits were lost while merging into another branch.

(I recently convinced the project to be moved to Git, though. :P)
