The one that's more-or-less standard for the Unix and Open Source
communites is CVS. It is free, included on any Linux or *BSD CD.

I've also heard good things about bitkeeper:

Certainly if you're in a software shop, and possibly in any field,
your first question should be to ask what your developers use for
revision control on product design.

If they do have a system in place, that immediately becomes the
leading candidate for use in the docs dep't, and you'd need a
really good reason to use anything else.

If they don't, why on Earth not and can you solve their problem
along with yours?
