We (most of we, actually) have all been there. Some of
us (me, probably) are still there.

Whatever you choose, you'll take some time to get
used to it. So, if you decided that in the end you'll
use git, but you want to have a taste of darcs first,
I recommend you to read the "Patch theory" of darcs
manual instead:


There you'll find the best of darcs. If, instead, you
just use darcs for a little amount of time, you'll
only taste the beginner headache.
