Well, it's 12 years on for Git. And I'm seeing more about writing teams migrating to Git.

The big benefit seems to be portability, and untethering from a centralized server.

I think most of these fear-based objections are meant to be overcome. The fear is all kinds of clashing, screw-ups, lost files, blasted repos, etc. Major merging conflicts and the like.

I'd need more proof that these things are actually happening on a broader scale with tech pubs implementations of Git before I'd think twice.

The only thing that gives me pause is that it doesn't handle binary files very well.

I think it's the future, though. Adoption has been incredible -- at least in the coding world.

Git explicitly supports merging in Git, which addresses the big problem docs people often have with it. I'm not sure any other tech does authoring tool that does yet.

Personally I'm still biased toward Subversion. Avoiding problems with Git's distributed management of branches requires every developer to strictly adhere to the established workflow. And getting the workflow procedures exactly right will probably take a few iterations.
