I’m not sure why I don’t use bitbucket. I have to imagine it’s either a) because it’s made by Atlassian or b) because everyone else seems to use github. More the latter, I imagine.
There is a discussion on “why do you use github” on the discussion page for Leaving Github
I love bitbucket, but then again I use hg
agreed, it’s the latter. Github even says it on their homepage, “GitHub is the best way to collaborate with others.”
bitbucket says, “Unlimited DVCS Code Hosting, Free.”
Free isn’t an advantage. There’s no shortage of free git hosting: Assembla, Codeplex, and I’m sure many others. So I keep my private stuff on Assembla and public on Github.
