Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

CVS - Concurrent Version System - http://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/0,289893,sid9_gci211874,00.html
SVN - Subversion - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subversion_%28software%29

They are 2 similar systems that allows developers versioning control but SVN is newer and designed to address certain perceived weaknesses in CVS

svn and cvs are all open source version control system.

svn was created due to some lack of features in cvs. You can say that a lot of people are gradually moving from cvs to svn and I already did.

I suggest that you go directy to svn and cvs is considered outdated (though still used in many places):
