While I do love git, mercurial, bzr and all their hype, I can't help but wonder if the time spent on deciding on a DVCS is keeping people from writing cool software. With the curiosity if GNOME is decadent, perhaps we should just hack for a while and see what comes of it. I remember the reason I played with GNU/Linux in the first place is because of all the cool software that was available. Perhaps we've spent so much time going enterprise'y we forgot how to have fun.
On a lighter note; Aaron, Gabriel et. all, the new Banshee fscking rocks! It's an app I regularly show to people at the office who are curious about GNU/Linux.
I've pretty well switched to Git, however I enjoy mercurial more. But since the whole point is being able to work and interact WITH the community, it makes sense to work friendly with the masses. For better or worse, that seems to be git.
Miguel mentioned to me once he would write git# during the next hackweek, I fully intend to hold him to that
