Short list of mercurial cheat sheets

I'm using git scm for work and pet project quite long time. If wikipedia doesn't lie, first release of git was in 2005. If i remember correctly, than I am using git since 2009. I knew about git at github :). Two weeks ago I watched classic presentation Linus Torvalds on git. There was a quote:
Hg (Mercurial) is pretty good, but git is better
It was not my first time that I heard Mercurial name. Yes, i head it many times in my life. But unfortunatelly i never used it. I was curious about this dvcs and i decided little plunge into it. Today i finished to read: Mercurial: The Definitive Guide by Bryan O'Sullivan:
It is a really great book, where Bryan describes work with mercural from the start (how to install it, hot to create mercurial repository etc...) to advanced themes (hg hooks, worksflows and etc...). I have no big expirience with mercurial but i had noticed two things for this time:
  • It is much easier than git
  • It is much slower than git
In other parts mercurial similar to git, same commands commit, init, tag and etc...
