Since then, I've used Mercurial a lot for our internal development
(almost all our repositories are mercurial now, except for a few SVN
projects and a single git repository). I also use Git when I "have to"
send patches to other projects, because of it's popularity.

One great advantage that git has over other VCS would be Gerrit IMHO.
That's the only thing that makes me want to use git sometimes.
I have talked to a couple of people who uses Git in the work place and
came to the conclusion that the only way for a git deployment to be
successfull is for someone in the team to be a git expert.

I still can't do anything other than git pull and git commit without google.

That being said, I would be ok with either one if we make the change.

Kind Regards,
