Hey Eric,

+1. For the most part this was a great email. It probably belongs 
immortalized on the darcs blog and elsewhere.

As a Windows user of darcs, let it be noted that even under the regime 
of "uneven Windows support" that darcs has always had (and will always 
have*) better support for Windows than git. Git support for Windows is 
an ugly hack and darcs has always been a native Windows application.

unlikely given the philosophies of git.
