Personally I agree with Tim here. Git might be useful however I think that
the "normal" VCS system is much more suited to a developer shop model. We
have developers, designers, and "production" people all working against
common code bases. The Git model just seems to complicate the VC compared to
say SVN if you are using it right. I can see how it might be useful in a
distributed setup (still a bit wary) but the number of merges & conflicts
that Git seems inclined to generate would be a pain in your average shop.
