For what it's worth, I had never heard of it before. +1 for obscurity. It's also obscure enough that it doesn't come with the linux distribution I use. Another +1.

Fair enough - I suspect it won't stay so obscure though. Being distributed with Linux systems I don't regard very highly - using the distro's to source applications tends to result in version update delays, unnecessarily duplicate packaging work, confusing application behaviour differences, and in general is one of the major factors preventing the development of a viable Linux application eco-system.

It's possible to use git without learning all of its internal complexity. You only need a handful of commands which are no more

Sure, and I've used Git when I've had to, but that was enough to convince me that it's not something I would choose to use unless I needed it's couple of key features (massive scalability and re-basing).
