Does anyone still *not* use version control?

We use CVS. Most people seem to be moving to Subversion these days,
though, as CVS has been likened to an old nag that should be put to

I had to use that when I was at CompuServe. I seem to remember it
being OK, but I've heard more negative than positive about it since
then, possibly because it's a Microsoft product. If you're an all-MS
shop, then VSS is probably your best bet though.
