What version control system do you use?

As for myself, I use git. I like DVCS because they are much faster than centralized VSC and much easier to set up and use for small projects. The staging and partial commit features are also useful and I totally love local branches and git command-line interface.

I actually can't stand git. Every time I try TortoiseGit I always find a big problem with it, git doesn't ignore line endings nor can it force them as SVN can with the svn:eol-style property, and I don't like how the whole branching thing works either. I make changes in one branch, checkout the master and do git add on a new set of independent files in a new branch are still there.

Git is - in Thorvalds own words: a bunch of tools quickly cobbled together - although it has improved a lot since it was made public.
Nowadays, it's pretty damn hard to pick which one is the better: Mercurial or Git.
I prefer Mercurial.
Because it's written in Python and thus far more portable than Git.
Because the syntax is more forgiving - and easier for SVN veterans to get used to.
And the framework is more coherent, rather than a group of tools (like Git).
But - as I said: they are so awfully similar that it just boils down to preference.
I just want to say that submodules in Mercurial is better implemented than submodules in Git...
But I digress..

SVN has more chances to compete with new centralized repos and features (1.7+). Needs however external server, like SVNServer for multiple repos. Plus file conflicts are sometime frustrating.

I have been using Git and SVN and since we are working on a small project with only 3 developers, We have chosen SVN which is easier to learn for beginners (and there is a good GUI on every plateform)!
