Well, technically, that's cross-platform...with 2 platforms only :D
But yeah it's not yet available on linux.

I did that too using books, but as soon as I got into complex usage, I
stoped because I didn't feel the need.
I expect a good ui tool to provide me ready-to-use command line context to
do some receipes if necessary.

By the way, personally I don't like having plugins into IDE to manage
One reason is that I like to separate the time for coding (in the IDE) and
the time for reviewing the code (in the DSVC ui tool)
in particular if both tools takes the same full screen, so that I can be
more critical to my own code (I don't have coworkers to review my code
currently :/ )
The other reason is that most IDE plugins for managing repos I've used (in
Eclipse and VS) tend to not provide enough commands or be very idiomatic
and less flexible to setup your own team-specific workflow.
But that's obviously minor things.
