Submission + - Mercurial, Subversion and Git: Pros and Cons

talexb writes: "I'm curious about Mercurial, a replacement for my current version control system, Subversion, and wonder what other SlashDot readers think about those two and about Git, the version control used for the Linux kernel. I've read several blog posts and articles and what I get from all that is, Git: very complex, very fast, but slows down without manual repacking; Subversion: simple, fast, doesn't branch well, efficient; Mercurial: not so simple, very fast, branches well, very efficient. Which one of these do you use, and why? What do you like and dislike about it?"
