comment What source control do i want for large project in average company?
@David, I was in the middle of learning SVN when I dropped it and started learning Mercurial instead. I thought Mercurial was actually easier to learn.

comment how to use version control
I prefer Mercurial as well. I like the support in Netbeans because while you are coding it shows you every line that has changed since your last commit. It also color codes new/changed/unchanged files in the product tree. Which sounds like it would be helpful for the OP: I lose track of which file I've edited or changed. HGE may do this too, I have not used it.

comment What is a hack?
@Thorbjorn It really depends on the context, If I say "I fixed my problem using an ugly hack" it falls under definition 1 which is what we are all defining. If I say "I just hacked the FBI's data center" then it falls under definition 2. However this question pertains to the first context/definition.
