I'm becoming a pretty big Bazaar fan, but if you're going for  
simplicity, a distributed VCS like Bazaar or git could be difficult  
for someone who has had no exposure to source control.

Even with Subversion, although some will have no problem understanding  
the concepts of updates versus commits, etc, I have definitely been  
somewhat shocked at the amount of guidance needed by trainees of mine  
in the past.

Running Subversion locally is probably a better bet when you're  
starting out; it's a bit easier, it's probably used by a majority of  
open source developers, and it transitions easily to a hosted scenario.

Then as you gain experience working with revisioned code in general,  
you can investigate other options, like bzr-svn or "pure" bzr.
