RE: Re: Visual Source Safe vs Subversion

No- VSS allows for individual check out of a file. But like Andy said,
VSS by default uses locking when working with files. If a user checks
out (locks) a file, then leaves the company or goes on vacation for 2
weeks, an administrator has to manually unlock the file if someone else
needs to work on it, and when that other person comes back, you've got a
merge mess on your hands.
