There are many blog posts out there that try tell you why Git is better than Subversion. But very few that tell you why Subversion is better that Git. As expected: You don’t have to state the obvious…

This is rubbish.

a) branches are evil???
Only if you're a CVS or Subversion user. Branches in git are GREAT

b) LOCKING files?
No need if you have a great merge algorithm like git.

Most of the other stuff smells of Microsoft-style FUD.

yea, it's a joke. This line is hilarious:
"Have to do critical stuff on the trunk (e.g. performing a release)? Just shout to your colleagues to stay away from the repository. Development may continue locally. And if the things take a little longer – no problem – the bigger their commits are, the better."

It's such an elaborate and well-thought joke, that I believe most of the down-voters haven't got it :-)

I think people voting it down missed the disclaimer at the end of the post :-D

I find it easy to miss the disclaimer, I did miss it ... until someone told me.

Some classic one liners:

"That sounds like some alternative to BitTorrent. I don’t support pirating!" in response to DCS

Very well written piece of satire :)

Thanks for all that guys that down voted... That is the biggest confirmation, that there are people out there that *really* argue that way. Have met too many of them, too... So no allegation.

I will try if it is possible to change the headline.

I went to read this honestly expecting some coherent arguments in favour of subversion... instead I regretted reading it all the way to the end.
Don't bother clicking on this link.

Sorry for that.
If it is any consolation, I have heard/read most of the arguments from Subversion supporters. Just exaggerated a bit.
So you may use the arguments in your next discussion. They just need a bit polishing...
