Submission + - Mono based version control as fast as GIT (blogspot.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Since the arrival of GIT it seems all the SCM developers out there are obsessed with performance. GIT looks like the fastest in town (faster than Perforce, which still claims to be "the fast scm") but competitors are getting closer and closer.

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.
