All this is very correct, but largely irrelevant.
I considered Git for use in my company, (subversion is quite bad for
handling lots of banches) and frankly: I decided against it because
people here couldn't understand it.
They have a hard time understanding Subversion (or CVS or any of it),
and git is even 2 notches harder to understand. That and the fact that
there is no decent GUI clinched the matter.
Sometimes one must weigh the technical features against practical usage.
I can have the best technical system of the world, but if I'm the only
one understanding it - in my company - it is simply ruled out.
