I just saw the first git tutorial at http://blip.tv/play/Aeu2CAI
How does git store all the versions of all the files and still be more economical in space than subversion which saves only the latest version of the code?
I know this can be done using compression but that would be at the cost of speed, but this also says that git is much faster (though where is gains the max is the fact that most of its operations are offline).
So, my guess is that
- git compresses data extensively
- it is still faster because
uncompression + workis still faster than
network_fetch + work
Am I correct? even close?
