There is only one - it is called CVS.

WinCVS is a GUI that runs CVSNT client commands with a CVS or CVSNT

If you want to use MS SourceSafe then use MS SourceSafe.  The reason why
there are many verison control systems is because there are advantages
and disadvantages to working different ways - so each tool like CVS,
SourceSafe, ClearCase has it's own strengths and weaknesses.  

It's always best to define what you want Software Change and
Configuration Management systems to deliver (using measurable criteria)
then decide what tools can deliver it (then measure the success).  Do
not pick a tool then define what it can deliver as being what you need
it to deliver.

I'm not really sure I understand a word of that.

WinCVS is a good tool for CVS 'experts' (or at least people who know how
CVS works), more 'casual' users tend to use other tools.

You could check out CVSNT since I wrote some of it, oh and: the server
supports 'reserved' versioning like SourceSafe as well as 'unreserved'
versioning like CVS and the client package contains a bunch of GUI's
including Suite Studio (Trial) which is a bit like SourceSafe,
TortoiseCVS, WinCVS and others.  

Check out the 'revision graph' view and the 'history' view of a sandbox
once you've got TortoiseCVS (it installs automatically with the CVSNT
