If You Like ClearCase – You Belong in a Mental Institution

Watching a Google presentation by Linus Torvalds on GIT.

He disparaged CVS and other SCC systems, but since CVS is a step up from ClearCase, well – his comments are in spades…
BTW – Google uses Perforce…

Another person talking about ClearCase and why it is a tool from the 1970’s.

BTW – what other “tool” requires a dedicated administrator?
I administer a Perforce server used by 2 development groups (42 people).  It consumes about 5 minutes a month of my time.  It’s straight-forward and obvious – what more can I ask for.
