I recently switched over to TeamCity from CC.Net.  Normally, like most people, I hate change.  But, while it took me a while to figure out the new way of configuring a build, it was certainly worth it.

Some of the benefits:
  • Being able to copy a configuration to easily start configuration of another.
  • Nifty "pause" feature.
  • Taking responsibility for broken builds
  • Easily viewing build logs in the web interface
  • Client tools (tray, ide integration)

I am sure there are others.  The list above are benefits that I have seen and used firsthand.  Unfortunately, there are drawbacks as well, for example, difficulty supporting NCover and Test results at the same time.  JetBrains has stated that they plan to support their own coverage metric in the not-so-distant future.
