I can only tell you my own story, and that's a story of being sick and
damn (oh, I've a much stronger word, but I'm too polite to use it
here) tired of CVS, especially having had to deal with it's absolute
lack of merging capacity.  It's taken trying a number of other SCMs,
which were all a PITA, until I found monotone, before I decided I had
found a worthy replacement.

To each his or her own, I say, and as you say, chaging (or "moving
on") takes some amount of effort, and you will not do it, as a group,
before more or less all (especially any core group) thinks it's worth
more than staying with the current system.
