From 0 to VisualSVN in 90s

I've started working on a few little things from home and wanted to start managing the source with Subversion. I've got a desktop at home running Windows XP and decided to put SVN there. On the SVN site, on the downloads page, I found this excerpt:

VisualSVN Server is a standard Windows Installer package that contains everything necessary to install, configure and manage Subversion server on Windows platform. It includes latest stable releases of Subversion, Apache plus a management console to perform most common Subversion administration tasks such as repository creation and access rights management.

I had this thing downloaded, installed, and configured in no time at all. So, if you're installing SVN on Windows, I highly suggest VisualSVN Server.

  • 30 seconds to download

  • 30 seconds to install

  • 30 seconds to configure

I have also heard git is super easy to start; even easier than 90 seconds.

I know this is an old post, but is showed up in my Google Reader again, so I thought I would leave a comment. We've been using Mercurial lately and I really like it, and it's super easy. If you are still looking to store your files somewhere I would look at bitbucket. You get 1 private repo for free and I think endless public repos, which are nice when you need to share files with someone. I think github is similar as well.
