Re: Re: Visual Source Safe vs Subversion

I remember "back-in-the-day" that the source control program used (and
written) by Microsoft was a program called "Delta". I remember it was
available for sale for something like a minute...I can still see the box
with the blue, 3D delta logo on the front (this was in the 95-96 time
frame).

From the information I remember from reading the back of the box, it was
meant for larger, physically separate teams of developers, while VSS was
never much good for more than a handful of people all within the same
location (because of needing to see the share on the VSS box to get to the
repository). I seem to recall Delta was expensive too...I want to say the
sticker said $600, but I can't be certain of that.
