Man, for source control before I was using Subversion. I don't know what I was thinking.

DISCLAIMER: let me first say that Subversion is an excellent product and what I am about to say has no bearing on the quality of the product.

Now, on with the post. The problem that I had with running Subversion was backup/restoration scenarios. The problem is that in order to use subversion on the network I had to do a lot of work through Cygwin. Now, I consider myself pretty thrifty at times, but I have been pretty uncomfortable lately with the fact that I am running Cygwin. The problem is if I have to restore my laptop, there are all sorts of extra loops that I have to jump through. (I think there is a way to use Subversion just fine with out needing Cygwin, but I didn't feel like doing the research, to tell  you the truth).

Anyways, I have moved on to using CVSNT. So far, the install is going fine. The reason I don't use Source Safe is that I have run into many problems with Source Safe in the past.

Anyone think that I am perhaps off-base here or on the right track?
