Linux.com is running an interesting short interview with Linus Torvalds about git.
Q: Does Git last forever, or do you foresee another revision control system in another 10 years? Will you be the one to write it?Over at the Atlassian web site, there's a pretty little animated page: "only a mere few days later, the world was given the gift of Git".
Torvalds: I'm not going to be the one writing it, no. And maybe we'll see something new in ten years, but I guarantee that it will be pretty "git-like." It's not like git got everything right, but it got all the really basic issues right in a way that no other SCM had ever done before.
The "10 year anniversary" is based on this, I believe.
If you have any knowledge of git, and git internals, gotta love this:
"write-tree etc. by hand" (!)
