I'm the cowboy who never in my life have used in your project version control system, except for a couple of commits to your pet project on codeplex (back in 2015), instead, just leave comments in the code with your name to quickly find.
But if the change in the level of the entire project - add class, remove - then you know.
Often doing nothing at all, "well, you can always then do something to compare the two versions if you want."
In General my life is built so that it'll go, but for a change I want something to try, and the life you want to reconsider.
However, it is very embarrassing that the services of the repositories like Github or codeplex required to fumble your code at least the admins of the service (and even then, on a private repository there are some limitations for free accounts), and I want locally.
If the version control system without the use of the service all the desired functionality - commit history, a visual comparison of each version?
And another point No. 2: want in the system as much as possible GUI, but if integration with the IDE, at the moment desirable NetBeans, then maybe he will write a plugin if the whole system will be like.
A convenient system is needed. With a minimum of fuss.
