RE: Microsoft Team Foundation vs Subversion

Hi all,

We are on the way to research SubVersion and evaluate its values as Configuration Management software. And could you please share with me about your experiences in SubVersion, and can give me some advices about SubVersion, can it be one CM for big projects? Some people suggested me it's not good for big projects :). Do you know any big projects applied this CM and got satisfaction from SubVersion.

I also see that merging is a weak point of SubVersion (Many complaints about this feature). But I still consider about how to define the scale of one project. One project considered as large project maybe it has:

                + Many developers work on this project

                + Many files are generating and handling in this project

                + Numbers of versions of the product (branching)

                +Number of features for this project

                Or any other factors can be considered.

Some comments evaluated SubVersion as one potential CM but which levels SubVersion will work effectively. Actually, I don't have so much information about how many rather medium and large projects applied SubVersion and I'd like to need how it works on those projects.

In the other hand, VSS will have one successor which evaluated impressively and powerful: Visual Studio Team System. Can we have any information to compare capability between SubVersion and Team System. And Team System of Microsoft can cover problems which VSS and even SubVersion faced?

Hope to receive your valuable advices.

Subject: Microsoft Team Foundation vs Subversion

People around are talking about postponing their SCM move till the next
best thing on earth will come in the form of Microsoft Team Foundation.

I'd like to get your opinion, have you already seen it, used it?
What killer feature does it have that Subversion might not have?
What are the key selling points besides the name of the vendor?

A description from 2004

As I understand its client is part of Visual Studio while the server
is a separate product.
