It is maybe easier to learn how to work with different clones, but
once you start working with lots of patches and you need to reclone
all the time, then it's the wrong approach to work, as it takes lots
of time to copy the whole repository on the disk. I worked like that
with mercurial and I hated it, especially once I started to have ~15
branches.

Git branches are cheap and fast.

Besides, imho, you can work with different clones with git too, if you want.
