One of my collegues was asking me which tools I use for .NET Development, preferrably of the free or virtually free variety. So for everyone’s enjoyment (and my future reference):


Source Control

Vault (Free for single users)

Subversion (Open-source SCM similar to CVS, but much better.)

- TortoiseSVN (Windows Explorer extension)

- RapidSVN (VSS-like GUI)

- AnhkSVN (VS.NET add-in)

- vss2svn (Perl script to import VSS into SVN)

- FireDaemon (Runs svnserve – or other console app - as a Windows Service. v1.6 Personal can still be found on various download sites and is free for personal use.)
