General Development CVS, part of the glue that holds open source development together, shows its age. Many competitors have emerged recently, fixing misfeatures and adding new ideas. Shlomi Fish (of the version control comparison fame) explores several current open source version control systems that may be better than CVS for your needs. Email Shlomi on how to add info for your favorite VCS on his comparison page.

Re: Am I the only one that likes CVS?

I don't think you understood the point that these people are making. Many of use used to love and swear by cvs. But there comes a time when people realize that they don't need to put up with silly constraints that CVS imposes. Other systems are at least as good, and stuff like subversion have numerious advantages that are easy to get addicted to.
