I knew subversion would come up. We use it at work. I do *NOT* like it. Reason 1: it looks like you have to check out a whole directory, and that you can't check out just one file. Speaking as someone who did, among other things, configuration management for about 11 years, I *HATE* this idea, since if you've got multiple developers, and one is working on one file in a directory, and another on another file in the same directory.... 

I won't start on the aggro here, where they normally *don't* lock the checked out files... which is exactly what version control is supposed to prevent.
