I disagree.  CVS has several fairly fundamental flaws (no global revision IDs, 
unable to move files, and more subtle problems with branches/tags).
SVN fixes these, and in most cases works as a direct drop-in replacement for 

While I can see that distributed revision control systems do enable some 
interesting possibilities, there's certainly no clear winner.  All of them 
seem to have have fairly serious issues with either usability, portability, 
scalability, and/or require learning a whole new workflow.  I'm sure 
advocates of each system will claim that their system is the "best", but I 
remain unconvinced.

SVN may not have the bells and whistles of some of the more exotic systems. 
However it is is well tested proven technology, and IMO universally better 
than CVS.
