I beg to differ. First, surely you realize that the way SVN works makes it
fit into almost any scenario with any editor or IDE. It does not lock the
files; instead, they can be edited at any time, and then they are compared
with the repository when you request that they be. Thus, SVN can easily be
used with VS.NET even without having it integrated into the IDE.

However, there are plugins such as the aforementioned TortoiseSVN and also
Ankh SVN which place the more common SVN commands into the context menus
within VS.NET.

With these plugins installed, there is absolutely no reason to use
SourceSafe over SVN, unless you really like SourceSafe and don't mind files
getting randomly corrupted and such :-)
