Having practical experience of cvs,svn,bzr,git and hg.... hg is by far the winner.

Seconded. TortoiseHg gives a cross platform base to all of the others and much prefer to using git direct.

I am still using RCS. It is a revision control sysTem good for one to four person projects for those who do not have a lot of time to learn one. I use it to RCS my python code and also my larticles in LaTeX. Its advantage is not features, but simplicity.

Git is the only revision control system.

I had to use git for few projects, and when I learned it I started to use it for all my documents, including OpenDocument or MSOffice - now I am happy No more files with dates as suffix
Perhaps other can also be configured to do this, though.

Oh Good Lord, very very old memories... I forgot to mention I have used RCS and SCCS before that...

Actually, I'd still go with hg (Mercurial) for that use.

You only need the advanced branchy mergy distributed stuff if you need it... it keeps out of your way if you don't.

the one I use happens to be git, so I'm voting for it. But I do admit that I'm voting a little unfairly, since I have not evaluated any other version control systems.

Hmm. Yes, if your changes only ever effect one file...

If your changes hit say a file and a header file.... and simply don't work unless you roll _both_ forward or _both_ back....

Then something that understands changesets on a group of files becomes _much_ simpler to use.

And that is where mercurial wins.


It is simply a database of changesets.

Git is the best.
It has many commands to do work.

But it lacks resuming cloning which is a negative point!

git, not only because it is so fast, but also because it has interfaces to most other VCS's

and of course github

(where is SCCS in the list? )
