Honestly I didn't find anything offensive in Ben's reply. And I'm usually easily offended. :) I'm a Mercurial evangelist but I'm sure that the basic concepts and features of decentralized revision control systems are similar with Bazaar-NG, Mercurial, Darcs and Git. The interesting idea is that some people do not seem to use NFS but instead check out repositories from their "file servers". That's surely in the spirit in DRCSs but for most data like e.g. personal correspondence (OpenOffice letters) or camera pictures (many gigabytes of JPEGs) checking repositories is inappropriate.
