NxN's alienbrain has some way to go before gaining proper trust from its
users.  The main selling point is usability for the non-technical people
(non-technical in my opinion includes artists, regardless of the fact that
they use a complicated 3D modelling application).

Vesta looks odd but I've yet to read the paper properly.  I particularly
like the dependency checking and heavy caching.  They look like the sort of
features which would be particularly handy for asset SCM's.  Dependencies
are always (inhouse) tools specific, fresh rebuilds take hours and therefore
branching the assets and rebuilding is not a most favoured option.  A
Windows port anyway? ;)
