In a pure Windows NT environment, the CVS page says
and this tracks with my attempts to use it. I've tried twice,
and both times failed to get the CVS system to be stable. Given
that, I'm a little skeptical of CVS in the NT environment.
- The second way is known as "local" or
"non-client/server" CVS. This lets you run CVS if you have only
Windows machines. However, due to issues (a) with local CVS on Windows,
and (b) with the suitability of Windows as a server operating system in
general, we would generally recommend this more to try out CVS and get a
feel for it rather than for production use
RCS, OTH, seems to work fine.
