Pardon me? What does VSS do better?

So what is the problem?

If it is that you can't remove your experiments, next time do your
experiments on a temporary test/training repository. The whole point
of a revision control system is that you never lose any history. The
fact that VSS makes it easy to throw away your work would normally be
considered a design flaw.
