comment Are there any statistics that show the popularity of Git versus SVN?
I'm actually fairly optimistic about TFS. TFS 2012 is a massive improvement over earlier versions (good riddance to those awful server workspaces and read-only files) and the next version of TFS will include Git support out of the box. The impression I get is that Git's growth is more likely to be at the expense of Subversion.

comment Is there tool agnostic terminology for source control activities?
Given that, among other things, what Git calls a "branch" isn't actually a branch (it's more akin to what anyone with any sense would call a tag, a label or a bookmark), and that a "fast forward merge" doesn't actually merge anything, Git is not exactly a shining example in terms of terminology.

If there's any bias, it will be towards corporate Java developers, since in practice that's Eclipse's primary audience. It may not be perfect, but it's probably the best indicator we've got about adoption of different technologies in enterprise environments. More importantly though, since we have results for several years, it shows some clear trends.

I've updated my answer to include the latest survey results. Given the new figures, I find it very hard to believe that Git usage in industry (even excluding open source) is anywhere near as low as 10% now.
