It will, though, take some getting used to, as will any VCS.

For those of you with decades of experience of CVS, you might as well
stick with it.

For someone entirely new to VCSes, I would absolutely not recommend
CVS at all. It does what it does competently enough, but if you require
any support there is a very small pool of people still actively using it
to draw from.
