Thanks for the info although you quoted me wrong on my second question, your answer made sense. So to be more specific, I will be setting up CVS for a multi platform, multi OS environment where the developers will work either/or remotely in the office, some of them are very junior and some of them highly experience. I will also be supporting those users so I was thinking of using a web client so that I would only have to support one CVS client.

By best I meant easy to support, easy to learn, lots of functionality and a high quality product that is stable, and offer good security . Do any of the web clients fit that bill?

As has been said, ssh rocks.

The other part of your question doesn't make a lot of sense, if you think
about it.

     "What's the best language to use, given that
      I will have an international user bed?"

Obviously, the "best" client will depend on what OS the user is using.
*You* can use whatever client you want.

Also, "best" client depends on the what the user likes.  Power-users will
probably find the command-line cvs clients available for Linux, FreeBSD,
Cygwin, OS-X, etc perfectly servicable.  Others may feel drawn to the GUI
clients made for most platforms.  Web clients exist that run on every
platform that runs a browser.  "Best" isn't much criteria to go by...they
*all* work.
