this is true, and IMHO a good reason not to use it. There are lots of
buggyness, especially with integration of VSS and MSVS. If they were
using it, it would become a good tool. And there is probably a reason
they don't use it.

They use something close to CVS (a command line tool). called squish or
something I can't remember. but I had a friend show it to me once when I
was at microsoft visiting.
