Yes, I agree fully. It would IMHO be much better to look at TortoiseCVS
(http://www.tortoisecvs.org/) for inspiration, which is a very nice program
which integrates with Explorer as a shell extension. You don't have access to
every single feature of CVS (which you get with WinCVS) but it's more than
enough for day to day use.

Microsoft doesn't make hardware, and you can't have failed to notice 
that it's been not making quite a bit of hardware recently. It has for 
example been not making the Xbox, not making Stinger and - just this 
week - not making Tablet PCs.
