I love GitHub. I use git regularly. But when compared to bzr, I love bzr more. Why? I find git’s SHA based version numbering cryptic. The default installation of git does not support command shortcuts (like st for status, ci for commit) which I am used to from my svn days (fact: this can be manually set using git alias).
