Mercurial Support for Visual Studio

I just created an account at bitbucket.org because they provide unlimited repositories and 300MB of disk space but I had to use Mercurial. After a Google search I found two plugins,
HgSccPackage which uses mercurial command line client as backend, andVisualHG which uses TortoiseHg as backend.I had no Mercurial clients install so I randomly chose HgSccPackage. I installed the mercurial command line client for windows from http://mercurial.selenic.com/wiki/Download and then the plugin.

I have to admit that I didn't want to switch to Mercurial, even though bitbucket supports SVN ( but still in beta ), but it seems to be very nice.
