However, I would strongly suggest that you consider either Git (most popular, and with some penetration into the R community) or Mercurial (similar in functionality to Git, but some would argue that it is a bit easier to use), and that you start by using SourceTree (an excellent GUI client for both Git and Mercurial).


One more thing -- you may use either GitHub (Git only) or Bitbucket (Git or Mercurial) to collaborate and share files.  If you want/need private repositories, GitHub requires a paid subscription, but Bitbucket makes unlimited private repositories available to those with a .edu email address (at least for now).
