Just a few days ago I was talking to a friend of mine completely astonished that he was using CVS at work. Not only he was using it, he was being taught how to use it. I told him about SVN existence and the fact that even though SVN (Subversion) was some kind of evolution on CVS it still sucked big time. I then showed him some of my projects on git and some popular website that make it easier to track your git repo. I went on trying to explain how much easier, more reliable and light git was and how it was a really wonderful piece of software for any developer. Open source does make the world a better place. What I had no clue about was that git was originally written by Linus Torvald. Really I had no idea until today when I found this talk on this old friend from prt.sc.
