As someone who uses git in a traditional corporate environment... I would never go back to SVN. Yes, there is a learning curve, but it's so worth it. Even if you don't use any of git's features, the speed increase alone is worth the change.

I'm a software engineer. I only use my laptop (13" MacBook Pro, usually hooked up to a full size monitor and keyboard) for actual programming or other "work" stuff. I use my tablet for pretty much everything else, browsing, shopping, email, games. Heck, I even recently downsized from an iPad2 to a Nexus 7. I even use the nexus 7 for email while I'm at work and the MacBook is right in front of me.

I think the primary goal should be too identify what problems the customer is having, not what solution they want. Observer the client and figure out their problems. It's the development companies job to figure out the best solution. When I say 'problems' I don't mean things like "I don't like that I have to use 2 screens to do y". I mean thing like "our shipping process takes too long and losses too many packages".
