I don't understand the git momentum.  I've use hg heavily, and am generally 
happy with it.

Every time I have to use git, I have a terrible time.  I find it vastly more 
complicated than hg.  The docs (in the form of man pages) I find never answer my
questions.  Each one seems to cover 100 different topics, variations and corner
cases.  Trying to read this requires a vast new vocabulary or arcane terms.

hg also has tortoisehg, which is a very nice mature gui.  There is nothing like 
that for git.  I have found 1 or 2 guis that are extremely limited in function.
