SVN v.s. CVS

Postby vdecampo » Jul 07, 2011 21:01

Is one better than the other? Or is it a matter of preference? My job is standardizing our development operations and I want to recommend SVN or CVS. CVS connectivity comes standard in the Eclipse CDT package which is also something I will be recommending to my company.

So, anybody have an opinion for either one?

SVN is more or less the follower of CVS. The principal SVN author also worked on CVS, and considers it an upgrade.

I would only use CVS for historical purposes, and not start anything new in it.

Yes, CVS is a dinosaur. If those two are your only options, definitely go with SVN, which is easier to use and more featureful.

SVN is a dinosaur nowadays. Distributed version control eats both of their lunches.

I second that (even though the original question was SVN vs CVS).

Mostly only in the free hosting world. In business people are still transition to SVN.
