Subversion or CVS, Bazaar or Mercurial?

I've recently had to think about a good technical solution to our Source Code Management (SCM) problems. We're using a central RCS directory tree to handle everything. It started out with just a few scripts and kickstart files we needed to put under revision control, but soon it ballooned (or course)...
While I do have some experience with CVS, I heard about Subversion (SVN) and other SCM tools and stumbled upon this comparison of Subversion or CVS, Bazaar or Mercurial. Great read! It doesn't offer a easy solution though, and experience is still the best guide. The difference between open and closed distributed revision control is also a tough decision to make, without solid team experience with either.
