I Hate Visual SourceSafe

August 16, 2006

Jeff Atwood’s latest post is very clear on this matter: Visual SourceSafe is absolute crap.

Here a some quotes:

If you are serious about the practice of software development, you should avoid SourceSafe.

SourceSafe poisons the minds of software developers.

SourceSafe gives you the illusion of safety and control, while exposing your project to risk.

Sing hallelujah! The Jedi Master has spoken. You should also read this excellent follow-up by Haacked.

The alternative: Subversion. It’s free and by far the best source control system I have ever worked with. As a developer I could not wish for anything more (and also nothing less !!).
