- you get backup "for free"
- don't need the network for most operations (you can do work while on transatlantic flight)
- most important for us: possibility to commit locally, checkpointing,
possibility to checkpoint broken code, code review
- with git i am simply more productive

The pushback I am getting is:
1. What does GIT give me that I don't get with SVN

- distributed instead of centralized
- branches that you can actually merge again
- commands that don't involve ridiculously long urls for simple operations
- easier forensics when trying to figure out where lost patches went
- high performance
- it just sucks a lot less

2. It is just another thing I have to learn and why should I when I don't
know what benefit I get.

losers. Since when is learning not justification in and of itself?
