No, some operating systems come pre-installed with some version of Git,
others have settled on some version. As operating systems are used in
various versions, and each of them will have their own considered stable
versions of Git, it's hard to say which is the most common.
Luckily, there is an annual Git Survey which investigates this, among other
As you can see in there, most people are on Git 1.7 (84%), and some
(probably more by now) have gone on to 1.8 (10%).
In my opinion, it would be fair to require your users to upgrade to Git 1.7
