At work i use ClearCase on some projects and CVS on other. CVS is being 
enforced to reduce costs but is being rejected by coleagues and old timers. 
I find that the biggest reason that they project is poor integration with 
the IDE which is mostly Visual Studio.

I am not an administrator and have not much say in this at work but 
personally, i am exploring Subversion as it is recommended by many and 
seems very promising. I use KDevelop for development and subversion is said 
to integrate well enough. With all this all i can say is that it is the 
concept of version control that is more important to learn as all of them 
are very similar to use with varing qualities of GUI.

As a user, IDE integration is very important.
