I am here to share what I know and to learn from those more experienced without the need to be rude or put down those who come to learn.

  • I will never downvote a solution that is functional & answers OP's question (even if there are better solutions).
  • I will upvote good solutions and questions.
  • I may downvote incorrect solutions if they clearly don't solve OP's problem but always with a reason, how else can anyone benefit?

    Downvotes without explanation help no one (OP, SO or me). Pointing out errors/making suggestions allows for improving/correcting answers which benefits everyone on SO.

I don't care for aggressive self-righteous know-it-all types. I wasn't born with all that I know now, and neither were you.

@MackieMesser Cool .. thanks. I was going to do this and add the output to the answer (with credit to you), but it generated 976 *lines of output*(!!), so I think I'll skip that. (BTW, Bert Brecht says "hello" :)

@Izkata ha ha .. good one, I didn't even notice that. I have a standard so.c file for stackoverflow questions (like I have so.py, so.awk etc) to test out things quickly. So.S .. :)

sorry this got closed, I looked at the other links provided, I don't think my question is an exact duplicate (though I learned a lot about the various systems). I believe my EDIT clarifies my goal - I should have put that emphasis into my original question - and I was looking for more answers with that perspective in mind (e.g., Karl Bielefeldt's answer among others)

Ah, ok, I'm familiar with Canonical as a long time Ubuntu user .. thanks. Right now it seems that Mercurial might be the most recommened, though I'm happy to consider trading noob-friendliness to flexibility for a simple capstone type project.
