Hey guys, what do you all use for your source/version control software? I played around with SVN but started pulling hair out because it wouldn't work on my server. So now I use Perforce which has a really cool free version for only 2 users. Anyone else?

SVN + TortoiseSVN.
Easy to use and setup.

Well, I'm trying to install it on my school's server since it's more stable than a personal server and as such, I don't have root access. So I tried running it off of my home directory, but things just got messy and it was impossible to connect to remotely. So I just said screw it.

Perforce on the other hand was a simple,
chmod +x p4d
./p4d

and *Bam* it worked :)

Needless to say, I'm now a Perforce user.

I use the Shingle, personally.

Funny story: minus the shingle, that is how the code where I am is done -> Ie, no CVS, no SVN until just recently. All was one guy, with a fuck load of backup folders (3 TALL spindles of dvds).

Wow, I'd love to work somewhere with the shingle method. "Sorry boss, Bob has the shingle today, no work for me"
