Overall Satisfaction with Apache Subversion

Subversion used to be our main version control software before we started using GitHub. But after introduction of Git, we stopped using subversion drastically . We only have a few old code projects which are still on subversion. We have decided to go ahead with Git for all new projects.
  • User friendly and easy to learn and understand
  • Free software
  • Easy to keep track of code versions
  • Not distributed like Git
  • Git more user friendly and advanced. Git has lot more features .
  • Better code management
  • Saved money since it is free
  • Increased productivity
Git is better than Subversion in every aspect except that is not free . But since our company has bought Git licenses and I would not go back to using Subversion .
If given an option of using Git, I would not use Subversion .
If the code versioning is only needed between a few developers (with not much collaboration) and company cannot afford to buy GitHub License.
