I boosted a link earlier which off-handedly described Git as being complex. I see the GNU tools I'm currently being called complex, yet I don't see anything in there which isn't necessary. Unfortunately for GCC.

I guess I draw my complexity lines more generously than some...

@alcinnz I feel like git is complex because managing distributed file state accross time is complex. Git just doesn't do a ton to hide that (which isn't bad IMO)


@mibzman @alcinnz Git is complex because it wasn't designed, it was an emergency hack that grew and accreted more and more commands.
