“if you’ve been using Subversion, your brain is a little bit, um, how can I say this politely? You’re brain damaged” and other wonderful ways of politely telling you that you shouldn’t try to use distributed source control (Mercurial, git etc.) like you did Subversion. It is different but it is better. Don’t use the cheat sheets. Don’t try to subversion your git repo. Go with the git, Mercurial way. You’ll be happier.
