I wasn't replying to the question, I was replying to your comment:

So you want use open source software but you don't want to open source your own?

I was drawing attention to the fact that GitHub use open source software, but don't open source their own (although if you're wallet is fat enough, they'll license you a black-box appliance to run on your own hosts) - which is what you seem to be criticising the question for.

Does SVN still force all my pending changes into one commit? (and one commit message to rule them all?)

For what it's worth, SVN has never done this - you can specify which files to commit in a given changeset.

Does SVN still force my commits to be immediately visible to everyone else

Not if you don't want it to. You can configure access control such that everyone has their own private branches on the server.

(but despite the fact that neither of these are valid complaints, git is still a much better tool that svn IMO).

Don't panic.
