That was a long damned time ago. Mercurial has had named branches for at least the last nine major release versions, and long since its 1.0 feature complete version. Maybe you should consider making comparisons between things that are comparable.

I think perhaps you meant to complain about the lack of locally named heads, i.e. bookmarks, which Mercurial has only supported for the last TWO major release versions, and which seem to have been added mainly to help people coming from Git keep from having panic attacks over exactly what you seem to want to complain about.

Seriously, there is very little about Git that isn't simpler and more straightforward in the Mercurial incarnation of it. But there is a huge and valuable feature of Mercurial that Git just completely fails to handle. Git should be fixed to handle it, and that's all I'm saying.
