Visual Source Safe: I Stand Corrected

Today, in Lecture 13, I mentioned Microsoft's Visual Source Safe as being a configuration management solution for the Windows platform. I received a message from one of our students (who works for Microsoft) disabusing me of that notion:

Noticed you had Source Safe as the Microsoft source control product. Source Safe hasn't really been used as a source control for Microsoft for a while now. I don't think it's even supported. TFS is the primary system (specifically Team Foundation Version Control) for source control now. Microsoft product teams use 2 main source control systems. TFS mentioned above and an internally developed system called Source Depot.

If you ask anybody familiar with Source Safe, they cringe...including me :)

Thanks for the correction!
