With all of the years of coding, developers still "backup" their code on another machine and call that version control. Hmmm...

If you're an independant developer (mISV), you more than likely have a version control system in place. If not, shame on you. There is CVS, Visual SourceSafe, and Subversion. I consider these the big names in version control. Now, for those who haven't tried SubVersion, its an updated version of CVS and definitely easier to install. :-)

LifeHacker makes things even easier by showing you how to set up a personal home Subversion server. Since Subversion is open source and free, there is no reason not to have a version control server.
