Are you kidding?

CVS is not as advanced as:

1. Microsoft Visual SourceSafe - the only sane choice for good data integrity
and portability.

2. tarballs/zip-files and patches. This one excels in convenience, and

CVS is a very advanced version control system, however. I do wish that
Subversion (which is a VCS that I have to use against my will) was as good as
it is.

When Chuck Norris uses git, he takes a coffee break after initiating every git
commit. And then he waits for the commits to finish.
