Whereas I prefer it to WinCVS or the command line, having stuck with WinCVS for 18 months before installing Tortoise. One of the reasons I prefer it is that it has these pervasive icons, so I can see the status of my file when I open or save :-). I use WinCVS for some operations, but very few these days. Different people like different tools, I guess. - Peter
