Re: Of course it's not just Perforce

Sorry, but TFSVC backend is Sourcesafe, it's the exact same workflow model, where you have to explicitly check out files before the modify them, where it leaves things read only and all hell breaks loose in third party tools as a result. Infact everything about how it operates is identical to sourcesafe. So it's either IS sourcesafe, or Microsoft have written from scratch something that has all the same limitations as Sourcesafe....

They may have fixed the corrupted data issues, but operationally it's still horrible, and it's like working CVS but with more limitations. I forced to use TFS (with TFSVC aka SoirceSafe) on occasion, and it not possible to do real work there, just single file, no parallel development check out, modify, check in workflow, anything else, the tool is a nightmare.
