Oh brother, cut out the silly flamebait.

"Patch systems" and SCMs have different strengths and weaknesses; which
one works best depends on the task at hand.  I use, and don't-hate [*],
both, in different situations.

[*] Not really "like"... dealing with maintenance stuff, whether SCM
    branches or maintaining patch sets, is usually annoying and fickle
    no matter what you do, but makes life easier in the long run; I like
    those things that maximize the utility/pain ratio.
