CVS, SVN, Hg, Git, VSS.

Systems I've dealt with:

  • CVS: C, centralized, poor branching, no transactions
  • SVN: C, centralized
  • Mercurial Hg: Python, decentralized
  • Git: C, decentralized
  • Visual Source Safe: C, centralized


One of the most widely used.

VIsual Source Safe

VSS, Microsoft's vanilla.
