Git is certainly a bit harder to learn than SVN, but it is so much more
flexible.

git's strength is that it works seamlessly as a single-user system and and
a multi-user + server system.

I use git to track changes during development even if I never move it from
the original PC.

Git has the added benefit that all clones are "equal". If you lose an SVN
server you're screwed. With git you can just reclone it from a developer
machine.

Git is a far better solution in the long term.
