No objection, but was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on Mercurial..
Found this Git vs Mercurial comparison.

Both are able tools with Pros and Cons.
The one thing I have seen from the little I have looked at Mercurial, it 
likely will be easier to learn for someone coming from CVS or Subversion.

For all the fervor/fanaticism other tools get I find CVS still gets the job 
done for small in-house projects. However, for larger projects I can see how 
CVS may have limitations that other tools have addressed.
