Also used ClearCase and VSS in the past but SVN is much, much, much better!!

OK, it maybe hard to configure Apache/SVN running on Windows but when it works it just works (using standard DB format)

Have you ever tried to create a Service Pack etc. in VSS? It works but it is a hell. SVN provides a more sophisticated mechanism for that and you can restore each version (revision) when using SVN. VSS can't restore all version (even it was labeled) when files where deleted, removed...

svn
  branches
    RB-1.0 // keeep 1.0 maintainable (e.g. bug fixes) while already developing 1.1)
    ...
  tags
    REL-1.0.0.1
    REL-1.0.0.2
    REL-1.0.0.3
    REL-1.1.0.0
    ...
  trunk
