I am not a professional programmer and my experience with revisioning systems is very limited. My needs were settled this week by installing TortoiseSNV and using it as my entire revisioning system on my home box (using a :localfile: setup). My understanding is that one of the nice things about Subversion is how it handles branching/tags and renaming or moving files and directories. I believe this is either impossible or very difficult in CVS, but common and simple with Subversion.
I know that the Linux kernel devs use BitKeeper and I'm not really sure why that is? I also looked into GNU Arch but it seemed to be fairly obscure, still.
TortoiseSVN will do fine for me right now and if I get to a point where I am able to or need to collaborate with other coders on my projects, I'll finally figure out Subversion (using svnserver, of course - I don't want to install Apache2 just for that).
