The fact that it’s so welcoming, easy to use and quick to install is one of the many reasons customers enjoy using Subversion. There’s no reason to make a change unless you really want to! Whether it’s the availability or just the simplicity of Subversion, we’re convinced it’s one of the best decentralized version control systems ever created. And compared to alternatives like CVS or ClearCase SCM, Subversion is more than three times faster and over eight times easier to use.
We’ve had a lot of positive feedback from a variety of sources, but here’s a quote from someone in our support department who got it installed and was able to get it actively working in under 30 minutes:
“Before Subversion we used CVS for our project. We are deploying the new version when we have a problem with the older one, but it takes a while to see if it has been solved or not. If it does not work you have to wait until the next day to see if it is fixed or not. With Subversion it is easy, you just click on ‘Submit’ and the new version is ready in around 30 minutes. A great improvement!” d2c66b5586
