I can share my anecdotal experience. I've used IntelliJ for about 7 years. For a long time I hesitated to switch to Emacs because IntelliJ has superb git integration. I thought Emacs simply cannot deliver same kind of experience. Oh boy - how wrong I was. Not only Magit turned out to be way more capable, but I also learned so much more about Git internals. I had no idea about so many things you can do with it. Most Git UIs are shallow and don't let you do extremely advanced stuff, like they're afraid users will be overwhelmed and perplexed. Magit doesn't lie to you, doesn't try to hide things.

I simply can't imagine my life without Magit, Org-mode and (EXWM on Linux).
