While I don't really disagree, I think the way you phrase this is
somewhat misleading. Distributed systems do have several advantages over
"traditional" ones, but you make it sound as if those advantages were
unique to GIT. The main reasons to stay with CVS and SVN are inertia and
their known stability; once you decide to move to something newer the
main competitors of GIT are other distributed systems.
