This may or may not help:

[Google] Tech Talk: Linus Torvalds on git

It's not short but I found it interesting in places and it's a sales
pitch for git (and to a lesser extent the distributed source control
alternatives) from the guy who designed/wrote the original version.

Needless to say, I don't recall it making any mention of SalesForce.

I've not watched this next one yet, but I'm thinking it might be worth a view

Git - a Talk by Randal Schwartz
"describe[s] what "git"; is and isn't, and why you should use it
instead of CVS, Subversion, SVK, Arch, Darcs, Mercurial, Monotone,

I note both are a couple of years old, and that git development is
quite active.  The git mailing list is busy, but I've always found
quite friendly if you have a sane question.
