What is Git?

Git is a free and open source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency.

What is Plastic SCM?

Plastic SCM is a distributed version control designed for big projects. It excels on branching and merging, graphical user interfaces, and can also deal with large files and even file-locking (great for game devs). It includes "semantic" features like refactor detection to ease diffing complex refactors.

What is SVN (Subversion)?

Subversion exists to be universally recognized and adopted as an open-source, centralized version control system characterized by its reliability as a safe haven for valuable data; the simplicity of its model and usage; and its ability to support the needs of a wide variety of users and projects, from individuals to large-scale enterprise operations.

    Review ofPlastic SCMPlastic SCM

    Version control is complex so having a) responsive support line both fast in response and comprehensive in their support, is great; but also b) easy to use GUIs reduce complexity: a nifty branch explorer helps you navigate the most convoluted of architectures.

    Plastic SCM is a solid, reliable piece of software that will help you with get things done.

    been an avid git user for over 6 years. was a little hard to grasp coming from the world of perforce but once it hit me that it was just a glorified patch manager everything fell into place. mainly use the command line interface, most ui's feel bulky and weak.

    Git has rendered itself to be an integral part of all development at JustChunks. We heavily rely on Git as our version-control-system of choice and use branches, tags and decentralized-development to achieve our software-management-goals.

    the next generation of version control, all others follow older outdated models. Open Source, no fees to use. Can hoist up your own internal server. Can live on a thumb drive. Developers can share from any OS.

    I use Git because there is nothing else that seems better for backup and working with other developers. However, the learning curve is high and there are times when non-developers must also know how to use git.

    Git ist ein essentieller Bestandteil unserer Entwicklungsteams. Sei es zur Versionskontrolle, Backupen von Code, dem gemeinsamen arbeiten an Projekten. Durch Git Flow haben wir eine effektive Arbeitsweise.

    My current work has taught me so much of SVN. Though it is classic and has own pros and cons, I like it too specially the way it handles and tracks the edits with revision numbers and merge techniques.
