To quote James Blackwell from bzr:

If that argument were true, everyone would be running windows xp, there  
would be no macs, and every webserver would be apache. :)  and we'd all  
_still_ be running sendmail. =) CVS has been around for roughly forever,  
but it too displaced something else -- cssc and sccs. SVN has prided  
itself on retaining CVS's feel with the addition of a couple features.  
Which is fine, but would you really want to deal with something trying to  
be like CVS for the rest of your life?
