I use svn (subversion) at work and it works fine, but I'm using bazaar
<http://bazaar-vcs.org/> on my own code, and even alongside svn to help
with merging branches, porting code up-stream etc.

bazaar is really great in my experience, although relatively new so you
might prefer to stick to svn. I haven't tried using bazaar on windows.


If you do go with svn, try the latest version, since merging support is
much better in this.
