Re: Source Control

 From the brochures, it sounds like FM7 should have something usable. For 
the developers, I'd recommend CVS, too. Aside from SourceSafe, the only 
other one I know about is ClearCase. And ClearCase will cost you 
thousands of dollars *per person*. My husband has used both, and the way 
ClearCase was used at the last company he worked for, they could have 
used CVS with no loss in features.
