Well... wiki it for starters.Basically, it's a versioning system. Such system allows you to store the differences between variations of one or more files, instead of storing the full files themselves. This allows you to make code changes, and if something goes wrong, to go back to whatever worked. All without keeping all versions on your HDD.In addition, such systems allow more than one person to make changes to one file. Once they both submit their changes, the system attempts to merge both submissions into a single file, asking for user approval if the conflict can't be resolved.There are more features too of course, but those are pretty much the top big reasons why would you want to use any versioning system. CVS is an example of another versioning system, but it's older than SVN, and in fact, SVN was created to adress some its problems.
