I just stumbled over an some information you might find useful. I saw it
when it came out, but had forgotten about it.

VSoft ( http://www.vsoft-tech.com.au/home.aspx ) a maker of commercial
software build and release management tools, has been doing periodic
surveys of what revision control systems their customers are using. The
did it again last month, and posted the results (from over 400
responses) at http://www.vsoft-tech.com.au/home.aspx .

The thing I find most interesting is that Subversion (for their
customers) has nearly caught SourceSafe, and will pass it next year if
their respective rates of change stay the same. Subversion was the #2
response, and grew by more than a third in the last 1.25 years. To be
fair, one should also note that use of Microsoft's new Team System has
almost doubled, which put in 3rd. Note that VSoft's product is
Windows-only, so if anything the results should be skewed *away* from
Subversion a smidge.

Of course the survey doesn't give you any idea of the relative size of
the customers who gave each answer. However, they do mention who some of
these customers are at http://www.vsoft-tech.com.au/customers.aspx . I
see some mighty big names in there. (eg: GE)
