Interesting. You suprised me in the "The C/B/S Way of Doing Things" section.
  I thought you were going to talk about the main goals of each of these
tools, which would help you as you discussed why SVN was an alternative and
what crowd it might appeal to (or why it was more appealing to you). I think
that would be important as you discuss why some of the other systems don't
work for you. For example (on goals), Bitkeeper seems more focused on
distributed changesets, Aegis is more focused on the development process,
etc.; and these things all affect why you see SVN as a better tool for how you
use these kinds of tools.

I hope that made sense.
