My company uses TFS for all of the extra bling. The canned reports and
"project" tracking that it allows to happen. Personally, I think we
could get very similar functionality out of Subversion and some other
tools (Bugzilla, Fisheye, etc) and save some money. But the decision is
not mine to make so I work with what I am given.

I still use Subversion at home and on other personal projects. I have
had conversations with fellow developers comparing some of the pros and
cons of the TFS version control components versus SVN. But nothing
formal. From pure VCS I think it might come down to preference (and, of
course, cost)...

Frank
