I used to have a page here entitled version control.
You can still look at it, it has some notes on conversion from
ancient software like CVS and SVN as well as some lame comparisons
with other version control hopefuls like mercurial.
These days any time wasted talking about anything other than GIT in the
context of version control is just that, wasted time, so let us move on.
Use Git. If you are working someplace where you are required to use something
else, find another job. If you are too lazy to convert projects on some old
system, "man up" and convert those projects.
Get yourself a copy of "Pro Git".
Get in the swing of using Github. These days it is the defacto way of distributing
software. You no longer download a tarball off some ftp or web site, but you
clone from github.
Master git branching. Branching in GIT works and is easy.
