Subversion is targeting a 1.0 release date on Feb 23rd. For many
people, that's going to be the magic number for "trying Subversion" for
the first time.

My recommendation is not to jump into the deep end and "bite the
bullet", but rather dip your toe in the water at first. Set up a pilot
program -- convert one smallish project over to Subversion, and see how
people like it. If it goes well, you can scale up from there.
