    Accepted Solution

    CVS - Concurrent Version System -,289893,sid9_gci211874,00.html
    SVN - Subversion -

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

    Assisted Solution

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    I suggest that you go directy to svn and cvs is considered outdated (though still used in many places):
