  • It's pretty telling of the quality of a product when it's own developers don't use it.

    Like many others, we choose to call it Visual SourceUnSafe, but must use it because it's the system that works best with Powerbuilder, sadly. At least I can use something else for our web products....

    If you only occasionally had to swear at VSS, consider yourself lucky! :)

    • How do you like PowerBuilder? I've heard good things about it, and that was many many years ago.

      • It's nice, mostly ;) Like most development tools, there's a laundry list of oddities you have to code around, but it's mature, stable, and easy to pick up. I have never seen a faster way to put together a data-driven GUI app. It's easy enough that our non-programmers can make report changes, too.

        Highly recommend it if you want to do GUI apps on windows and not use Visual Studio.
