Re: "has ever used Visual Sourcesafe."

Wait... you are defending a storage system that was "fragile" and "required constant maintenance"?

And the phrase "network issues could propagate into the database" sounds like the techno-babble from some clueless TV show, not a real-life experience.

Here is a quick rule: A version control system is the same as a file system. Don't use it for anything that matters until it has been around for a few years with no screw-ups and no major changes. Normal events, like a power failure or slow network, should only result in a tightly-bounded loss of recent changes.
