We use Clearcase here in work - and despite Kate's glowing endorsement,
I have to say that I like it. Works well on Linux, and saves you having
to mount views over NFS from Solaris, which we have had huge problems
with here. Does anyone, as a matter of interest, know what's wrong with
Linux's implementation of NFS?
That said, CVS has been nice to me, apart from the fact that updating is
a pain. Better idea, IMHO, to let each developer create their own
branch, with check-ins, and merge back to the main branch periodically -
that way, when you merge back, your changes are (in the event of no
conflict) automatically visible to everyone else... just my opinion,
