"Great for personal VC"

What do you like best?

Does an incredible job of keeping all of your ongoing work together and still separable. No more disjointed branches and continual rebasing.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes can be finicky about letting you rollback or apply patches selectively (demands dependent patches). Managing this can require careful attention to breaking up commits.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You will fall out of love with git.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Managing my pending work independently from primary organizational source control.
