Clearcase ROCKS!!! It's a shame it's so damn expensive. Only one of the three places using Version control even thought about buying it (and did!) the others just ignored it because of the price point.

    Clearcase does rock, if you have an admin and the money :)

    And, well, the GUI tools (who needs GUI tools) don't work so well and the MVFS kernel module only supports about 3 crappy Linux distributions -- and old versions of those too (no Debian or FC, etc).

    I'm a Linux guy. At home I usually don't do anything big enough to need an RCS, but I really should use one out of habit as I'd be more likely to get used to it and use it in places where Clearcase isn't.

    IBM CMVC, now that was painful... CVS isn't that bad, I need to try SubVersion and ARCH at home on my Debian boxen. ARCH actually sounds cool from the Wiki page, but I have yet to see it in action.

    I'm sorry, but clearcase can give the users too much power. Especially when it comes to merging to the mainline. I want a tool that forces certian users to reverse merge before merging and breaking the build.

      Of course! Would you complain about Unix giving users too much power? Ridiculous.
      If you need to curb the users, that's what administrators are for. (I know. I'm a full-time ClearCase administrator^Wgod.)
      Triggers give you absolutely open-ended flexibility in constraining what the users can do.
      ClearCase rocks!
