The #1 problem with new untrained users is they keep their editors open and 
overwrite the updated code with their old code then commit it... it's why in 
our training course we say you should close all editors before committing (the 
training course covers a lot of ground and is recommended if you're serious 
about implementing SCM).

Changing source control system won't solve that of course...

You can always recover the changes (and you even know who removed them from 
the commit logs) - nothing is ever lost.
