Matt Mackall makes mercurial

My revision control tool of choice is currently mercurial. I've just learned in this interview that mercurial was started by a guy called Matt Mackall, and he's trying to get some funding to work on mercurial full time.

I liked his answer to the second last question. Reading between the lines he admits that git and mercurial are effectively equivalent, but he's quite happy to throw in a cheap joke with "I guess some people just have no taste, but if git makes them happy, I won't try to stop them"
