In other words, this is a monumental moment in history.Most people (will) focus on the expletives part of this incident and the subsequent apology, but they are actually missing the bigger picture.

A version control system (or VCS in short) is a tool that records changes to files on a filesystem.

Version control can actually be used for nearly any type of file on a computer, not only source code.
