                                        <em>Random testimony: "I understood how to install Mercurial and how to use it in a few minutes." -Giorgos Keramidas</em>

                                        ## From the strengths of Mercurial discussion: 
                                        Just works the way I expect - Paul Moore
                                        It took me one evening to get comfortable with it.  About a month to better understand its distributed nature. - Isaac Jurado 
                                        Mercurial strikes a marvelous balance between these two ends.  It can be configured to support either simple environments or very complicated streams of changes interacting in custom ways, and it does all that without becoming a humongous monster of complexity. - Giorgos Keramidas
                                        The dev's of Hg are generally friendly and approachable. - Gerard Korsten
                                        The code base for Hg is pretty small and yet its pretty feature complete. - Gerard Korsten
                                        Simplicity, being distributed, extensibility, speed, familiarity, bash completion, understandable and reasonably small code base - Peter Arrenbrecht
                                        The team on the project gradually grew from just me to a few people here and abroad. This was a totally seamless experience - Peter Arrenbrecht
                                        Easy to understand at a practical level. - Michael Estrand
                                        The included web server [...] replaces a lot of functionality of GUI tools in a truly multiplatform way. - Daniel Serpell
                                        There isn't much to learn to be effective. - Doug Philips
                                        It took my less than an hour to understand it. - Thomas Burdick
                                        It has a tortoise so I can actually show my boss its highly productive even in windows. - Thomas Burdick
                                        The commands usually do what I assume them to do. - Bastian Doetsch
                                        Mercurial's conceptual model is clean and simple enough to carry around in my head” - hgbook
                                        It's so easy to start a project; hg init, and you're good to go. - Paul Fisher
                                        It simply works [...]. - Hans Meine
