Took the words right outta my mouth.

IBM really had nothing to do with it, ClearCase was an abomination well before IBM inherited it via their acquisition of Rational.

It's my understanding (unverified) that in the distant past the codebase that became ClearCase was inherited from some SCC system or another that was Unix-based and was alledged to be much better in it's original state on Unix as a Unix app. But I can't say that with any certainty, that's just what I heard...

In any case, that's my experience with CC. FWIW I've known some SCC admin types who love CC because once they know the ins and outs it allows them all sorts of flexibility, control (down to the level of Draconian paranoid lockdown of client activity) and so on...

My experience was strictly as a user and was overwhelmingly negative...
