In that sense, it's all pretty much a wash between the three. Selenic initially
developed Mercurial in the aftermath of the Linux kernel Bitkeeper foofoorah,
and they continue to use it to manage their kernel modules.

If we want to talk about Windows support, we should stick to more concrete facts
 (like the availability of Windows shell integration, etc.) instead of vague
inferences.
