What's all this git stuff anyway?

on in Development, Ruby

I’m reading a lot about git lately. Supposedly it’s the next greatest revision control software. It’s faster, better and doesn’t take the enormous amount of space subversion does. Maybe I’ll try it anytime soon but I don’t see any obvious advantages for using git over subversion.

I think using git’s a lot more trouble. Does capistrano work? Where am I going to host my project? Does netbeans support git? Is there enough git documentation for dumb people like me?
