We've been using Visual Source Safe over here, cos its easily available and works nicely with the developers as well.

Hi list,

We want to install a document versioning system to store FM8 books and
files. My manager is strongly recommending CVS, but having looked through
the archives here, it seems that Subversion might be a better bet. Has
anyone anything new to add to this debate to help me convince him? Or any
other recommendations for a system we can use? As I'm the sole writer here,
normally I should be the only one accessing files, but PMs might need to
pull them out from time to time. We're Windows-based.

Thanks in advance,
