Mercurial and Plastic SCM can be primarily classified as "Version Control System" tools.
"Easy-to-grasp system with nice tools" is the primary reason why developers consider Mercurial over the competitors, whereas "Wanna do Branch per Task Dev? Plastic rocks it" was stated as the key factor in picking Plastic SCM.
