I boosted a link earlier which off-handedly described Git as being complex. I see the GNU tools I'm currently being called complex, yet I don't see anything in there which isn't necessary. Unfortunately for GCC.

I guess I draw my complexity lines more generously than some...

@alcinnz I feel like git is complex because managing distributed file state accross time is complex. Git just doesn't do a ton to hide that (which isn't bad IMO)

@mibzman Yeah, there isn't much abstraction in Git!

Even internally...


@alcinnz @mibzman that missing abstraction I think is, what makes 'complexity': I think I saw the link via some post you boosted, Adrian, and I think it explains better what I hear when people complain about complexity.
