I never noticed this advice when I was I new user. Must have blown right past it.

Not disagreeing with you, mind, just thinking that if this is the most damning complaint you can launch against Mercurial, then I'm going to need a lot of convincing to become a Git enthusiast. The documentation there is a crawling abomination and the tutorials are all filled with equally poor advice plus a healthy dose of conflicting judgments about best workflow practices. The internal Git users group at the large software enterprise where I work is a comedy goldmine for precisely the reasons I describe in these two articles. Their transition from legacy centralized VCS into Git is in the thick of things right now, and the battles over workflow and aesthetics are raging hot and heavy. I see all this stuff every day. It's not pretty, and Git's one major flaw is mainly to blame.
