Overall Satisfaction with Git

Git is being used as version control software to merge different sets of code together and keep a log we can look back on if problems occur. I don't think there is any real competitor to Git. It can also be used to try to track your commit level vs others.
  • Better merges than anything else.
  • Logging.
  • Still some confusing merge issues.
  • I would like to see a system IDEs can use that automatically notifies you if someone pushes.
  • It helps diagnose issues by tracking them down.
  • It helps to show who did the problem.
Git is far superior at merging than SVN and I think every other VCS from what I've heard. It's also by far the most common so using it is a no brainer. Since it's written by the one true king Linus himself there can be no question to its design and architecture.
There is a lot of documentation online but it's not like you can call someone to help you with Git issues. Sometimes merge conflicts can get nasty.

Do you think Git delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Git's feature set?

Yes

Did Git live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Git go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Git again?

Yes

In my opinion Git is always best suited for every version control and anything but the most simplistic of temporary code should be version controlled. It takes so little effort and can save your entire application. SVN was much worse at merging when I used that for a couple years.
