The best thing about Subversion for me is its dramatically better Windows
functionality over CVS. SSPI authentication is cached by the client, so a
new authentication token doesn't get acquired on every operation compared
Because its DAV-based, I can point Windows people to the web address, or
say to make a 'Web Folder', and don't have to worry about them even
needing a client to get my latest code.
There is active development on plugins for VCC (Visual Studio
integration) and the TortoiseSVN is much more polished than its parent
Subversion showcases some of the best attitudes of OSS software. Rather
than being competely revolutionary or extremist, it is just a good system
with great interoperability and support for multiple OSes. It's been a
great example at work to compare with Visual Source Safe and other more
expensive/inferior tools that people seem determined to use for some
reason. And remember, this is just version 1.01.
