Although Linus Torvalds' words carry some weight, context is important
too. Perhaps, he meant to say that Mercurial would be 'not too bad'
for the Linux development model. He is hardly qualified to choose a
VCS for every software project out there. I would argue that for many
projects Subversion would be the perfect choice.
Anyway, given that there is no consensus, I think that 'if it ain't
broke, don't fix it' would be a healthy approach.
