It's like that old joke: Unix *is* user-friendly, it's just selective
about who its friends are. :-)

While I would definitely say that learning git is worth it, I don't want
to trick anyone to thinking my way, only to get discouraged when the
paradigm shift seems too great.

The main thing I miss in bzr is the sha1sums to reference changes that
git uses.  This is based on the presentation I saw at last year's
linux fest.

It's nice that when you get into the DVCSs, there are often bridges between
them.  Git can track CVS, SVN, and bzr (and maybe others, not sure),
and I'm sure bzr and hg can do the same with the right tools.

Which is as it should be.
