    Accepted Solution

    PVCS costs money, cvs is free (as in beer and speech). We use both PVCS and cvs at the place I work, but I am not sure why we use PVCS anyway.

    I would personally go with CVS over PVCS anyday, unless you absolutely need support.

    Assisted Solution

    Better yet, consider using Subversion (SVN) instead. This is a versioning tool specifically developed to be better than CVS, and it is! It's free and has everything that CVS has to offer, plus some added features, such as atomic commits, directory/refactoring versioning, repository mirroring, better binary handling, etc.
