The new name reflects the wider value of the KOffice technology platform beyond just desktop office applications. With a new name for the Suite and new names for the productivity applications, the Calligra community welcomes a new stage in the development of free productivity and creativity applications for desktop and mobile devices."

RE[7]: Gut so!

"Git is better at multiple branches, which helps when you have many developers each working on their "own thing".

Thanks ! In which way is Git better exactly ?

Git was written by Linux Torvalds with the design aim to address specific needs of co-ordinating a large number of independent open source developers all doing their own thing.

Torvalds had several design criteria:
- Take CVS as an example of what not to do;
- Support a distributed, BitKeeper-like workflow
- Very strong safeguards against corruption, either accidental or malicious
- Very high performance

Git's design is a synthesis of Torvalds's experience with Linux in maintaining a large distributed development project.

Git has:
- Strong support for non-linear development
- Distributed development
- Compatibility with existing systems/protocols
- Efficient handling of large projects
- Cryptographic authentication of history
- Toolkit-based design
- Pluggable merge strategies
- Periodic explicit object packing
