RE: Perforce versus Subversion

Subversion is FREE, Perforce is NOT for "commercial"
use. End of evaluation IMHO, agin for commercial use.
I'm not saying that makes Subversion "better", but
it does the job adequately - except for cumbersome

I've evaluated BOTH, and chose Subversion at work
ONLY for that reason. If only for personal use, I'd
probably use Perforce.

Perforce supports a "configuration spec" idea, similar
to Clearcase (but not quite) though, which neither CVS
nor Subversion sadly do NOT.
