I don't fully get the whole 'we MUST go DVCS!' meme going around the
Internet either.

There's situations where a centralised system like SVN works and there's
situations where a DVCS works better.

Unfortunately there's a whole group of rabid, zealous proponents of one
system or ther other out there that are quick to denounce any of your
rationale for going with one or the other if it is not their $FAVOURITE_ONE.
