Investigating git

Sam Ruby: Whenever I find myself updating a script I wrote months or even years ago, these days my first step is to do a git init.

Over the last few months, I’ve seen quite a few people commenting about how git is a “better” source control system than Subversion. Today I watched this video as Linus Torvalds talked at Google about the ideas behind the creation of git. It’s both entertaining and informative and I think now I understand what they meant.
