That's not correct.  There are MANY software control tools which are
free, but yet not nearly as popular.  Git is so popular because:

      * it is very fast and very efficient
      * it scales from single-user up to enormous workloads like the
        Linux kernel, etc.
      * it works offline/unconnected (all DVCS's do this of course)
      * it allows users to do complex things like rewrite history.
      * it supports a wide variety of development processes: from hub
        and spoke, to multi-peer, all the way to unpublished servers
        using email to send patches.
      * its underlying implementation is elegant and extensible.
      * it has very strong "network effects".
