cvs server VS cvsnt server

Our current setup is:

Server: Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.11.11 (client/server)

on Red Hat Linux Advanced Server release 2.1AS/i686


We are in the process of switching all of our version control over to CVS. Some of our developers were using CVS long before we began our project to use one version control product within our company. Due to certain limitations in CVS, we have been looking at CVSNT Server. We have read the documentation on the benefits of using CVSNT server VS the CVS server.


Our current developers have a number of concerns:

1) Does the Linux version of CVSNT have all the features of the Windows version on CVSNT?

This is important because we will be running CVSNT on Linux

2) Is there any CVS functionality that will be lost if we move to CVSNT?

3) Is CVSNT 100% compatible with CVS?

Meaning the IDE interfaces designed for CVS work with CVSNT.

4) Will new features of CVS be added to CVSNT?

Meaning will CVSNT be kept as compatible as possible with CVS except with additional features

5) Is the file locking of CVSNT better than that of CVS?

            Some developers require file locking.

6) Is there anyone who has switched over to CVSNT server on a Linux server who is willing to share his or her experiences with us?

7) Was there any changes to your process, or changes in functionality?


Any information would be appreciated.

Thank You
