For windows, it’s hard to beat the simplicity of SVN via Tortoise SVN. That being said, I much prefer the power, speed, model, and flexibility of git. git runs on windows, and would be well worth the effort it takes to learn.
Understanding the brilliance behind git will pay huge dividends to you as a software engineer.

I am happy on Windows 7 with Subversion with TortoiseSVN as Client. VisualSVN Server is a nice, point-and-click solution to setting up the Server with very little hassle.
If you’re running 64 bit Windows, be sure to install the 32 bit and 64 bit versions of Tortoise alongside, so you get Shell integration from within 32 bit IDEs.
- Mercurial (See TortoiseHg)
- Subversion (See TortoiseSVN)
All 3 are great – experiment to see what’s best for you. For repository hosting, check out Github, Bitbucket (Mercurial) and Beanstalk (svn).
My preference is perforce, free for home use (up to 2 users), and trivial to setup if your code repository is going to be on the same machine that you write code on. Only a little bit harder if it isn’t.
It scales well enough that it’s used in a lot of professional coding houses. And it integrates with VisualStudio (I’m told, I use the command line version because I’m an old timer).
