RE: SVN / PERFORCE comparison

Have a look at this website:
http://better-scm.berlios.de/comparison/comparison.html

SVN/PERFORCE
* Does the system support moving a file or directory to a different location
while still retaining the history of the file?
        SVN: Yes. Renames are supported
        Perforce: Not directly (you copy and then delete but it manages to
keep track of the branch; the item below allows for this very feature)
*Can the system propagate changes from one repository to another?
        SVN: Yes, using either Chia-Ling Kao's SVN::Mirror script or the
svn- push utility by Shlomi Fish.
        Perforce: Unknown. Probably Not.

Best regards,

Cagatay Catal

Subject: SVN / PERFORCE comparison

My organisation is about to move on to a new source control system.
Are there some people there who can give me pros and cons for SVN and
Perforce

Relying on what I found all around, Perforce is faster and has a better
branch merging.
SVN can be used seemlessly over http, and has a strong community, and it
is free.

Can you help me ? Since I'd really like to move to SVN, I need some
killer arguments :)
