I've used SmartCVS. 

Most of the GUI clients I've seen are simple shells that wrap the
command-line client in a GUI, with a one-to-one correspondence between menu
options and CVS commands. SmartCVS is a stand-alone client, which abstracts
what the user wants to *do* and presents that in a simple manner.

It does have some drawbacks, though (hey, nothing's perfect). When you load
a project, it scans your local directory, and this can take a long time in a
large project. There are also some commands that aren't available (can't
think of which ones offhand - some of the 'cvs admin' commands, IIRC).
