CVS is a system to keep old version of files. It allows to find out who and when made a change. You can also get any old version of the file (for example, if you want a file as it was a year ago, you can do it). CVS systems are very often used for software code, especially when many people work on it.

You can get software from CVS, but it's not its main function. When you get files from CVS, you get the files as they are now. Good if you want to be in touch with the program.
