It will continue to be used for many years, but specifically it will gain huge mindshare in the corporate world, while (eventually) losing mindshare to distributed systems in the open-source arena.
eventually, that's a pretty interesting word to use for "two years ago" (or more). Having your source in cvs/svn is pretty much the exception rather than the rule now (and even then you always get DSCM mirrors which become the de-facto public repo.) as it's a significant barrier to (esp. outside) contributors. And I don't see this as a proprietary vs. Open-source discussion, more of a "people who care about good source control" vs. "people who really don't care".
