Subversion vs. Git

When deciding on the best repository type for your team, there are a number of important factors. Subversion has become the de facto standard in our industry for the past several years, however, Unfuddle now supports a new and very powerful version control system: Git.

Git is a distributed version control system, originally developed by Linus Torvalds for Linux kernel development. It has grown over the years to serve as the development platform for many other very large and active open source projects. While Git can be an excellent solution for many teams, it does have a slightly higher learning curve than its Subversion counterpart.

For a detailed explanation of the advantages of Git over Subversion, and vice versa, please see the following from the official Git Wiki: Git-Svn Comparison.
