git for me

I don't know whether it's the best - but subversion keeps getting used on the projects I end up on

I prefer git. It's been quite some time since I've worked on a project that's used anything else.

git, not only because it enables everything I need in a VCS, but additionally features the possibility to import from, and commits to other VCS's like subversion and bazaar so I can still work together with people/teams that prefer those other VCS's without having to learn all the quircks of those.

Our company moved to git from SCCS in 2007 and we never regretted that move. An additional reason then to choose for git was that it built out of the box and was up and running within 4 hours on HP-UX 64bit. I tried svn before that and gave up after 4 days because of the shitload of unbuildable dependencies. In a perfect world choices might have been different, but HP-UX still is far beyond the view of the average programmer.

Note added 2013-12-31: The best ever GUI to a VCS is perforce' p4v. *everything* in its GUI is intuitive and to-the-point.

Both received zero votes in previous years so were not included this year.

Git, even with SVN its brilliant.

I never got the hang of SVN or CVS, but GIT speaks to me!

As I said last year, I'm amazed anyone could vote for anything other than git.

git got my vote...

Several years back it was Mercurial, as it was a bit more mature at an ealier date. But I also knew that it would only be a matter of time before git overtook it.
