RE: Re: Clear Case vs Subversion

Well, ClearCase also represents it's data as a filesystem, with an explorer-interface.

However, the explorer-integration of CC is nowhere near as good as that of TSVN; you don't get any icon-overlays giving you an indication of the status of a file as you get in the CC Explorer and context menus are dog-dog-dooooog slow (at least for me! but my CC server is on a slow link across the channel...)
So I don't ever use CC via windows explorer anymore.

cheers,

I think you should mention that SVN integrates much deeper with the MS Windows
OS via the TortoiseSVN plugin for the Explorer. IOW, every program that
stores data in files (not in DBs or the registry) benefits from this
integration.
