  • Got CodePlex?

    Maybe its just the bad taste I have in my mouth with GotDotNet that is slanting my view....

    Call me a cynic but I just dont get the idea of  Microsoft has never played nice with their licenses in the past, and SourceForge is available and has proven themselves able to scale and support any size of project.  Also, if you havent been paying attention, they just added Subversion support to SF as well.

    Interesting enough, since CodePlex is all going to be based on the Team Foundation goop and there is a project on CodePlex named "Turtle" which is described as:

    "Turtle is an free rich client interface for Microsoft's Team Foundation Server (TFS) source code control system. It works with the TF.EXE command line client to perform source control operations against TFS."

    So how the heck do I get this TF.EXE?  What do I need to buy/download?  No idea.  Someone needs to put a FAQ up.  :)
