This web page shows some downsides I found in software packages. Each of them, on their own, can cause major troubles to newbies trying to use the software. For more experienced people they spoil the fun using the software and often cause headaches. Some issues may exist by incident, some may be caused by policy of the software author. As soon as an issue is gone to my knowledge, it will be striked out from this website. Known workarounds will be listed too, as long as they are required.

Checking out big projects can take 'forever'

(on slower or memory limited systems, such as certain Synology-brand Network Attached Storage systems, caused by 'calculating deltas')

Hard to 'retrofit' older versions in the version tree

(after committing newer version on beforehand)


Git is a great version control tool. It seems less suitable for less powerful CPUs however because computing time seems to grow exponentially. Furthermore, like with most version systems, it is hard to change history which could also make initial commits of existing (folder based) projects harder. It seems better if the user is in control about history policy and not the version system.
