Wednesday Moan: I've decided SVN sucks

After working with a few years with VSS & CVS, SVN was a welcome blessing, even though it is not perfect. I've been looking into mercurial myself, and also tried using Git but installing TortoiseGit was a PITA; on the other hand, TortoiseHg was much faster to install, plus it seems to have better IDE integration (I consider that a must for VCSs) (I tried in Visual Studio but not in Eclipse yet - seems that there is a Git plugin in development called EGit, it may be worth a try).

unfuddle.com gives away free private accounts (comes with git) limited to 2 users. Unfuddle has very nice project management stuff as well.

I'd rather have my co-workers and me work with a command-line-only subversion than the f*cked-up mess that is AnkhSVN. Anything that goes beyond "This is my project, I want all the files in it to be versioned, and I'll never move them" is often too much for it to handle appropriately.

Could be, a few years ago we tried AnkhSVN on a project and it was very buggy and not well integrated into VS, and found myself using TortoiseSVN for most of the tasks. Have you tried any recent version of AnkhSVN? looking at their website suggests that they have improved the integration, but it is not clear if they solve the bugs. Subversive works well on Eclipse though!
