Distributed Version Control FTW

Linus Torvalds gives a good talk on the evilness of Subversion and CVS and the benefits of Distributed Version Control Systems (DVCS).  It’s pretty interesting.  I prefer Mercurial versus Git myself but the idea is the same.  Having a copy of the entire repository on your local system is a much better way to get distributed work done.
