Excited about bzr

It seems that bzr (bazaar-ng) version control system is definitely up to something. You can use it locally without any administration nuisance. Just go to the root of your project and do

bzr init
bzr add .

And then you can keep editing and doing

bzr diff

To see what you've just done


bzr commit

To commit your changes. Kinda like local rcs (which admittedly sucks in most areas), but with tree-level changesets. I think I'll start using it locally for both work and freetime projects when I'm experimenting, or when I'm the only developer.

Underlying this simplicity, there is the full power of distributed version control systems (think arch, bitkeeper).

A simple tutorial is here.
