In my opinion the choice should be left up to developers.
I originally started off using svn, because it really is easy to use - especially with a GUI like Tortoise. After a while I became uncomfortable with svn - also that I had seen devs like Big Bang not using svn. I tried using Git but it was really confusing coming from svn, and with no GUI. So I stopped and went back.
Almost 2 weeks ago I tried using Git again after not using svn for a while. Looked at a few tuts and I was set. It’s really not hard and (imo) really is superior.
