Dont switch to Sourcesafe.. its horrible.. do a google search on it, you will see there is tons of problems. Here is some of them: http://www.sharpdeveloper.net/content/category/7.aspx
MKS to VSS has anyone converted data from MKS to Microsoft Visual Sourcesafe
At my last job we used AccuRev with Finalbuilder. Worked fine without any special integration./Tomas
What we're mainly trying to do here is track what version control systems used by what percentage of our customers. And we use the data to make sure we have a good coverage. I blogged about it just for general interest - I'm not trying to prove anything here! :) It's just interesting to watch the changes over time especially when newcommers like TeamSystem appear out of nowhere and get used by a large percentage of people in quite a short period of time.
It would be nice if you also posted the raw data along with the graph. By themselves without the supporting numbers, the graphs themselves could be misleading. Please consider it. Thanks Thomas
"Approx how many people are included in this survey?"We got just under 400 replies for this question.

Approx how many people are included in this survey?
Interestingly enough, with the changing MSDN licensing structure, VSS is no longer as "free" as it used to be. VSS is now bundled with the premium version of MSDN as opposed to the professional version. This adds about $1500 to the cost of an MSDN license if you were previously using professional.

"It looks as though SourceSafe has dropped by the same amount that TeamSystem has increased. Are teams just making a direct transfer between the two?"Interesting question - which I don't know the answer to and suspect no-body does :) TeamSystem is very expensive, so would seem strange that people using VSS, which is essentially free, would be moving to quite an expensive VCS.
"Microsoft TeamSystem is really jumping in popularity"It looks as though SourceSafe has dropped by the same amount that TeamSystem has increased. Are teams just making a direct transfer between the two?
