We used CVS for 4 years here, before we switched to subversion in October
To make it short we did never reget the switch untill now, and I think
we will not reget it any time. We even notice an increase in productivity
of the individual developers since we use Subversion. In mid of 2003 we
reached a point where we found that using CVS any longer would cause us
trouble because of the missing features (especially losing history when
moving files, not able to delete directories whithout destroying older
branches etc.)

My list of Pros and Cons
+ Renaming of folders/files
+ better binary handling
+ atomic commits
+ solid perspective of ongoing development of subversion ;-)
+ easier, more obvious branching
- slower than CVS

- lacks all the goodies of Subversion
- no substantial perspective to be improved
+ faster than subversion
+ yet more tools available, where the subversion tools
  around are better from my POV.
