Unlike other SCM and DVCS solutions, Plastic offers deep parallel development that implements a long-standing best practice known as Task Based Development. Essentially, all tasks are on their own branch. Branches are fundamentally different with Plastic too, as there’s built-in inheritance. This means by default it will inherit the source tree from its parent as well as any permissions that are in place too. Currently, it’s the only solution that supports both DVCS and VCS (centralized development). It also has a fully graphical interface and allows you to visualize your entire development practice and structure as well as drill down to individual files and explore their history with a 3D browser tree.
