Two points of view: thinkvitamin.com/code/… ; findbestopensource.com/article-detail/git-vs-subversion - Google git versus subversion for more. Read some. Make the decision you think is best for your environment. –  voretaq7 Jan 24 '12 at 8:47

Subversion is, in essence, a "better CVS": a centralised client/server version control system.

Git is a "stupid content tracker" that has build a fairly popular distributed version control system on top of it.

Really? If you have a suggestion about what to change to avoid that unintended implication, let me know? –  Daniel Pittman Jan 24 '12 at 6:58
