While it does have limitations, SourceSafe works reasonably well. It's less bug-ridden and much less complex than a number of the other options in the poll. The key to SourceSafe integrity is keep the data base within limits (5GB and 10 users), regular use of the ANALYZE tool, and frequent backups.
