|When I started to work for my current employer, subversion was a great discovery for me.
I've heard of it before, but team or project leaders in last company were against it!
I'm not sure if they were just lazy or intimidated with new...
They (me included) used SourceSafe and for several months simple backups and merging with WinMerge.
For now, I have only good words for subversion, it's not perfect (there is trouble if you are asking for it , for instance sharing stuff that relies on generated code like dataSets), but it's far better than SourceSafe.
