In regards to you comments around the 28:00 mark about why people use Tortoise rather than a VS client. Personally, I use tortoise because I do cross platform development with both C# and Java. I can't check-in my Java code from within VS and vice-versus. So rather than having multiple check-ins for the same code change, I use tortoise so it all goes in together.

I am among those refugees who use Tortoise since there is good single Visual Studio add in for Subversion or Mercurial. There are tools like AnkhSvn which integrate with VS but one of my colleagues mentioned some wierd behavior with it in some scenarios. Hence the Tortoise client is the reliable SVN client.

I meant there is NO good single VS add in for Subversin or Mercurial.
