There are obviously some areas where CVS can be improved - no doubt. 
But if you compare it to some other commercial SCM system that I'm 
familiar with, e.g. ENVY that comes with IBM's Visual Age for Java or 
PVCS, it is much, much superior. If ClearCase were free I'm pretty sure 
that I would choose it over CVS, but it's anything buy free. The 
Subversion project is interesting, but they will no doubt barrow a lot 
from CVS, if not code, then at least design and functionality. The 
bottom line is that you can do a lot, lot worse than CVS, even if you 
choose a commercial tool. My two cents...
