   Just to throw in my two cents, I've been using Mercurial (hg) on and
off for a few years, with a reasonable amount of success. It is largely
equivalent in functionality to git, the interface seems easier to use,
and while it isn't as popular as git, there are still a number of large
projects using it. I've even managed some success doing incremental
conversions from CVS (though the CVS repo could use a bit of cleanup to
make it seamless).
