Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

I guess becuase my team moved from SourceSafe, we were a little jostled
when moving to something that was so different (and keep in mind this
was many versions back, we haven't seen the latest WinCVS) -
SourceSafe's GUI was fantastic, it was frustrating that the database was
so problematic.  WinCVS seemed somewhat un-natural to me at first, it's
possible I simply didn't give it enough time.

Now . .if we can get some one to build a SourceSafe type GUI on top of
CVS . . .  This would be me -> :-)

A lot of people I work with prefer WinCVS because its a 'thing' they
point to
and call CVS.  Most of them stay in flat view so they have a running 
list of modified files.  Personally I use both, depending on what mood

I'm in at the time.
