RE: Subversion Vs. Microsoft Team Foundation Server

I’ve not seen anything like that, but as was mentioned, TFS does more than SVN – it’s a full-featured SCM, not a version control repository. One reason why it costs infinitely more I guess J


However, perhaps it’s time to make your own comparative review: think what you use TFS for at the moment, make a list, and then you (or we) can take each item and give you some indication of the differences, or at least how SVN fills those requirements.


I’m sure many of the features of TFS can be replicated using alternative tools – eg bug tracking is provided by many web-based tools and can be integrated with SVN.

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 ).
