The question Why is Git better than Subversion? was one of the first thousand posts on Stack Overflow.
It is obviously not constructive by current standards and has 37 answers. However, unlike most questions that get lots of answers, a large number of these are many-paragraph explanations, not just few-sentence remarks. The question had 53k views and a score of 395.
It's currently deleted. Does it deserve to be undeleted and historically locked?
