Okay. I'm figuring at least a 65% probability you're "taking the piss" as our friends Down Under would say, but I'm going to respond anyway.

My group is a long-time SourceSafe user. We have over a dozen 'data bases'. We run nightly integrity checks and backups. We have never had an unrecoverable failure in our source control due to SourceSafe. I'll grant you there are a lot of things that it doesn't support, but for us it works. I'll also admit we've written some special tools to improve our workflow and to automate our build process.

There was a period about four years ago when we planned to modernize and switch to git on our development branches. Those plans got shelved when the company starting executing a self-performed lobotomy and laying off engineers right and left. With five of us remaining out of an original 17, there's little point in switching until Windows actively prevents us from running SourceSafe.
