Compact (the whole history takes the space of a single svn checkout...)
Better tools provided by default (git grep, git bisect, git checkout -p)
Easier way to send and merge patches (git send-email, git format-patch,
Better tracking of files (git tracks lines and discovers rewrites and
renames by itself)
And probably some other stuff I'm forgetting
I wrote for ffmpeg a small guide, it gives most of the pointers for get
an idea of the commands (they are a bit different).
