Joel Spolsky: Distributed Version Control is here to stay, baby

 Joel Spolsky, from Joel on Software fame blogs about why he thinks DVCS systems are great: http://www.joelonsoftware.com/items/2010/03/17.html

 

To summarise his article:

"... if you only remember one thing, remember this:

When you manage changes instead of managing versions, merging works better, and therefore, you can branch any time your organizational goals require it, because merging back will be a piece of cake."
