Move from CVSNT to SVN?

From: Eric B. <ebenze_at_hotmail.com>

I'm considering a switch from CVSNT to SVN and am looking for feedback from
people who have made the switch in the past. Are you happy with your new
choice? Does SVN allow you to be more productive than CVS? What prompted
the move? What features are you able to use with SVN that you didn't have
with CVS? From the flip side, are there reasons you regret making the
change? Are there things in SVN that are more complicated or difficult to
acheive than CVS? Or are some tasks with SVN more error-prone?

I know that a great portion of the OSS community has switched to svn
(apache, sourceforge, etc), so I'm trying to find out "why". I know that
SVN allows for directory revisioning, but I am assuming that there must be
more than just that to promote such a large change over.

I'm not trying to start a war as to which solution is "better"; rather just
looking for feedback from experienced users who have made the transition and
recommendations or warnings of things to be aware of prior to making a

I have a large CVS repository from 10yrs of code that I would be moving
over, so it isn't a decision that I'm going to be making lightly.

Thanks for any insight!
