.Net Developers: SVN vs Mercurial pt2

So, after some thought, some replies (mostly favouring SVN) I have chosen to go with Mercurial as the VCS for the project that I am working on.

The reason being, is that although I won't be hosting on Codeplex, they support Mercurial and there are plenty of tools that .Net developers can use to bind to the SCM and the fact that it is a distribute system means it wins in my eyes.  I will need decent branching support and I have never been a fan of SVN's branching mechanism.

I am willing to be educated more if you have any compelling reasons for me not to go with Subversion.

Picture of me smiling.

I lead the Chrome Developer Relations team at Google.

We want people to have the best experience possible on the web without having to install a native app or produce content in a walled garden.

Our team tries to make it easier for developers to build on the web by supporting every Chrome release, creating great content to support developers on web.dev, contributing to MDN, helping to improve browser compatibility, and some of the best developer tools like Lighthouse, Workbox, Squoosh to name just a few.
