Well, to be more specific, for *nix systems.  I use it all the time on
OSX and it works great.  However, Windows support looks like it still
might be a little iffy.

Also, while it was originally designed by Linus for kernel
development, it has evolved into a popular VCS that's used for a large
number of open source projects (e.g. perl development recently
switched to git) as well as some development shops.
