After watching Linus
I read a little about darcs today and I think that might be a better fit. It sounds like it is cross-platform, doesn't require a ton of software to provide read-only access via webserver, and is really easy for checkout/update/commit and branches. That, and backups are as simple as a check out since checking out grabs the entire history? So, guess what I'm asking is are there any good reasons why I should not invest some of my life in this piece of software?²
If you haven't noticed, I've reverted to making technical posts here instead of the blawg. What can I say? I really don't write enough to justify compartmentalizing³ myself like that!
1. I was going to use the base word "software" instead of "program" but changed it because "both of those softwares" and "both of those software" look wrong. Is "software" the plural of "software"?
2. I don't really expect an answer. You can't get to the LazyWeb from here!
3. Wait, what? Firefox spell-check says I spelled that right?
