Thanks for your comments, I've taken them on board,
I'm most familiar with with cvs and svn for source control. I've also 
used Microsoft source safe. I generally just use what's given to me by 
whoever is paying me and don't worry too much about the details. Many in 
the Linux world seem to use git. Seeing as I've been using Linux at home 
since the early days of slackware I suppose I'd better look into it. 
Strangely enough I've never had a paid job using Linux. I've worked on 
multiuser UNIX systems and Sun Workstations but never Linux so I guess 
the need has never arisen.

The Java world seems to largely use Maven to manage their code. It's a 
bit of a headbanger and I've never used it. Ant and FTP are my current 
faves at home. Primitive but good enough for my personal and business sites.
