But sometimes you also have to calculate the cost of retaining a stupid system.

I've been working with CVS (CVSNT) and can tell you that I would (almost) always change to a better system on every project I work actively on.

The biggest problem with CVS:
Versioning is on file level, not on repository level. I'll leave it to the reader to work out all complications that stem from that.
They are many, including that branching is so buggy it just simply doesn't work.
Wrong is evil and must be defeated. - Jeff Ello
