[seam-dev] Mercurial vs GIT

As I understand it GIT support on windows is not good, and also just having a quick google around it looks like the tooling support is not very mature either. Also the commands are different to subversions commands so there is quite a steep learning curve. 
I like bazaar, it uses the same commands as subversion, works on all platforms and has eclipse and windows support. It also has launchpad, which is the bzr equivalent of github.

I have not tried GIT, but from what I have read it is pretty complicated
to learn to use...
OTOH I have tried Mercurial, which is also distributed, and found it
confortable... apparently the
way it deals with its distribute nature is easier for subversion users
to understand...
AFAIK Netbeans source code is in Mercurial, also OpenJDK... So it seems
to work
well with large code bases... and there are plugins for Netbeans,
Eclipse and the Tortoise Hg
project is advanced and usable...
Google Code offers free Mercurial hosting...
Why not Mercurial?
