No stats, just anecdotal.

I should qualify that to say that this statement is for DVCS only, not
all VCS (the non distributed ones). SVN is the popular one among non
DVCS, and CVS by fact of inertia.

If you look at the ones that are used much they are Git, bzr and hg.
Git is used for the kernel and was written by Linus. bzr is used by
Canonical on Launchpad (where Ubuntu and other projects are).

bzr is more friendly, as you said that Git is not really intuitive.
