comment Why big companies use Perforce?
So definitely before Vista, very possibly with XP. Which means that there's 3-4 major OS releases, plus service packs in SD. Definitely not a trivial thing to move around.

I wasn't aware of the history. Out of curiosity, when did that move happen? It's very important for folks to remember that business and technology decisions can't be made in a vaccum, and there's a lot more to take into account than just what the ideal tool might be.

Thanks for providing a reasonable answer besides the cynical "wine and dine" theory. It may be true for a lot of companies, but there are some legit reasons that companies go with Perforce (or rewrite it :P ). I can't imagine trying to handle the NT source in SVN. It's true that SVN and Git are catching up, and maybe for a new large project, one of them is the right decision. But think of the costs associated with moving a live project as big as Windows (all versions) from one source control system to another. It's not worth the cost, especially when the current source control system works.
