.NET Source Control

Our firm is looking into source control for our .NET applications.  Is Microsoft's Visual Sourcesafe the route to go or is there a better competing product out there.  Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Personaly I use MS Visual Source safe as it comes with my MSDN subscription. It's nicely integrated with Visual Studio.

You can use any source control you want - including CVS (there is windows server version (hard to install) and several free CVS clients outside - TortoiseCVS http://www.tortoisecvs.org/ and CvsGui http://www.wincvs.org/ to name few). There is also experimental CVS integration module for Visual Studio - http://www.jalindi.com/igloo/

I've have heard good references for the Vault - source control package written in c# (http://www.sourcegear.com/vault/index.asp). If I'm not using VSS I would try this one.

Thanks.  Vault is what I keep running into other than Sourcesafe.  We'll have to decide between one of the two.
