I really like git and am glad to have migrated. It has several features that 
stand out:

- local repo

The git repo is local which means that you can work for days without an internet 
connection.  A killer feature if there is one.

- Blazingly fast.

Sometimes, Git completes an operation so quickly that I re-execute it just to 
make sure that my command was executed.

- Distributed

Git allows you to coordinate your work with several repos

As far as I am concerned, Git is just a better SVN.
