I have yet to meet an actual, real-world git user who doesn't employ both,
just for different purposes and in different scenarios. As with anything
that involves a choice, there will be a difference of opinion on when one
is exactly correct and when another is. At least it has the choice.

I occasionally use Github but not primarily. Most of my git is done at work
and on my own server. I like git because I find it superior to all the
other options I've tried (which is all the ones so far mentioned in this
discussion plus Perforce). I used to find it over-engineered, but then I
understood it and instead I find it perfectly suited for the jobs I employ
it for.

This is not their only workflow pattern. But, for when they do need to use
it, it's available as a built-in option.
