It would affect performance for tagging / branching operations though--any time that it needs to completely rewrite the file. I'm guessing that's what Bo was talking about. Bo--probably not an option, but if performance is a key factory for you on your CVS server, I can attest to the fact that a Linux box is multiple times faster than my XP box is on file operations (e.g. copying big files, on nearly identical machines)--and CVS would be correspondingly faster. I realize changing server OS involves much more than 1 benchmark* but it's something to consider. * Note that I'm not directly comparing Linux to XP here... wouldn't want to have M$ sick their lawyers on me :) Also, just running AV software on XP and not on the Linux box probably accounts for a good deal of that performance hit.
