Thanks.  I'll look into both for local use.  I do use Git some, and I have no problem with commend line (Unix or DOS), but also depends on what Big Brother allows on our machines.

No complaints re: Wing.  Works great and I always like to how responsive you are to user requests.   (kudos)

git or hg (or other systems) are not just for large projects with more than one developer.  They also support a single developer by keeping track of the changes made.  You do need to decide when to commit something, but it's often a good thing to think in terms of whether this is a group of changes that does something or is the project in a state I may want to return to.

I suggest starting with hg because it's simpler than git and if you use Windows, it doesn't require an unix-like emulation layer (which actually works surprisingly well these days, but it's one more layer to understand).  A tutorial is at http://hginit.com/ and there are probably others.  It's worth learning the command line tools because most of the resources on the internet are going to be about the command line.

That said, we'll consider adding a feature to Wing to automatically create a limited number of backups.
