What are people using for code repository and bug tracking?
I'm at a new startup and need to get a code repository and bug tracking system in place. My old gig used Perforce and Bugger which were fine but maybe there is something better out there. So what are some of you using for this?

For bug tracking my personal favorite is JIRA, although it's probably fairly expensive for a new start up. Mantis is a free bug tracking tool that works fairly well, although it's interface looks like it was designed in the 90s.
SVN is easy to use VCS, although the client has a lot of dependencies. GIT is more powerful and has fewer dependencies, but in terms of ease-of-use it's pretty much at the opposite end of the spectrum from SVN. It has very good merge support. Unfortunately, I've never used a VCS that was less user friendly.

Yeah I signed up for the Jira Studio trial a couple of days ago. The UI isn't the greatest but the tool seems solid overall. The price is pretty reasonable so we'll probably stick with it unless we find any major issues with it in the next couple of weeks.

I am comfortable with web based bug tracking system.
