    CVS or SVN?

    Trying to develop a project right now, so I'm trying to decide...
    CVS or SVN?

    Why should I go with the one you choose? What functionality you like the most about the one you choose? What kind of functionality do you think the one you choose (or both) lacks?

    Thanks

    SVN is superior to CVS in almost every way.

    I just transfered a decent size code base from CVS to SVN - I will never look back. In retrospect, it is amazing how long CVS has lasted.

    I would go with Subversion hands down.

    On the other hand, CVS is more widely supported on websites that support open source projects (at least until Sourceforge finally gets Subversion support up and running for everyone, which will be this year, I hope).

    Also, the feature set of CVS variant CVSNT does offer strong competition to Subversion.
    #include<cstdio>
    char*s="#include<cstdio>%cchar*s=%c%s%c;%cint main(){std::printf(s,10,34,s,34,10);}";
    int main(){std::printf(s,10,34,s,34,10);}

    Can someone recommend a good GUI based CVS and SVN client? I've used LinCVS and the versioning tools built into text editors...but is there anything else?

    windows I use Tortoise(CVS|SVN) and on linux I use cervisia,

    but honestly, it is just must easier to use command line.
