For anyone interested who hasn't seen it, I would recommend the talk at

In it, Linus obviously says lots of good things about GIT, as well as
bad things about other systems, but really I think the key point being
made is not GIT vs CVS or whatever, but the distributed tools vs the
centralised tools.  That really is the most interesting part of the
whole discussion IMO.

Anyway, I've had a couple of requests for my slides so I've put them,
plus other talks I've given or will soon be giving up in a bzr
