What really surprised me is that a mono based SCM called Plastic claims to be almost as fast as GIT in update operations.
Is it really possible beating a native Linux application(remember, designed by Linus himself) using Mono?
The point is that the folks developing Plastic say they run their test using a local GIT installation and a remote Plastic server, so Plastic is supposed to be even faster if it were running locally! Also GIT access all its data using simple file routines, but Plastic uses a Firebird backend."
