I'm a little confused. Apparently Team System is already going to
include Microsoft's new version control system? When I was at a
Microsoft Seminar earlier this year the Microsoft speaker said that
Visual Studio 2005 will not yet contain the new version control system.
He said he didn't expect it to be included for at least another year. He
explicitly said SourceSafe was still the only available version control
system in VS2005... Weird...

He did however show that Microsoft themselves are already using their
new system. He showed this SharePoint-like website that runs on the
Microsoft intranet. It showed the current progress of the Visual Studio
2005 project. The website showed all kinds of graphs and status
information for the project. You could even see which developer broke
the nightly build (that happens!). He explained that each developer has
to check in his work before 15:00 and if it causes a nightly build
failure the developer will have to come in (that same night) and fix it.
If this happens a second time his manager will be called (again at
night). He didn't want to disclose what happens when the build fails a
third time :-)

I do have the latest beta Team System software in my MSDN archives, so
maybe when I have the time I can check it out myself.
