There was a really good CLUG talk some years back contrasting the
different versioning tools and their strengths/weaknesses. Without being
able to see YouTube here at work, I'd wager that Linus is more
interested in distributed patch management (like darcs,
http://www.darcs.net/DarcsWiki) than maintaining a centralised corporate
store of source code (all our staff are in this building).

Until all our developers have IDEs that can back-end onto git,
Subversion will remain the least sucky solution. ;-p
