Hi Hamid,
TFS is more than an SCM. it includes a build server, bug tracking, CI
and more. So comparing TFS and Subversion is not comparing apples with
That said, to perform rollback in TFS (in my understanding) requires the
use of TFS power tools (tfpt.exe). It is also my understanding that
Microsoft did not officially support this tool (as at Jan 2008). This
may have changed.

Subject: Subversion Vs. Microsoft Team Foundation Server

Good morning,


One of our development teams is planning to move to Subversion from
Microsoft Team Foundation Server , for many obvious reason, one being
the cost. However, in order to justify the move to powers-that-be we
need some sort of comparison report. I have been looking at all the
posts on the net and have not found one. Has anyone in these email list
done such a comparison and if so, can you tell me what have you found.
Most reports I have seem to suggest the TFS is far better than SVN ( of
course this comes from Microsoft site itself ).
