Git and the Swiss army knife myth

Posted on: Sat, 25 Feb 2012 14:48 By: patrick

I just came across yet another article that touts Git as "a version control Swiss army knife". The comparison annoys me! I was born and bred in Switzerland, and I know from first-hand experience that a real Swiss army knife is small, handy and has only a few tools. In short, this: A real Swiss army knife

Git, on the other hand, is more like this:

A Swiss army knife abomination.

(I do like Git, but please don't compare it to a Swiss army knife).
