I think best is to keep things simple. The reason why I do prefer
Subversion to git is user interface and usability. Switching from CVS to
Subversion keeps work flow same, commands same etc. but to use Git I
need to understand much more and learn quite many new commands. If
someone needs distributed "advanced" version control system, then Bazaar
is way to go, because of the user interface is enough similar to CVS and

Also by switching to Subversion, people can make their own choice: there
is at least git-svn, bzr-svn, and hg-svn.
