Abstract of the Talk: Introduction to Mercurial

It's been a long time that people keep talking about git but forget a equally-good (if not better) distributed version control system: Mercurial (hg). Mercurial is of the same age and maturity as git, has straight-forward and convenient UI (command-line and graphical), and supports clean and flexible work flows (note, you have to forget the pollution from git :).
