I'm using Visual Studio.  My current goal, though, is not to be
testing bleeding edge features, to be perfectly honest.  I've got a
simulation that I'm developing, using FlightGear as an image
generator, and I have a deadline to meet.  Honestly, I'd love to get
acquainted with CVS and familiarize myself with the process, but it's
more important right now that I get this particular project finished. 
Also, I don't want to be introducing unknowns by working with a
continually changing product.
