Idiotic Software (TFS)

User Experience is where Microsoft TFS loses the ground. Here was a day when I struggled to merge around 30 changesets across branches. The user interface doesn't have any filter by which I can see only my changeset (out of 40 membered team's chagesets from the day we separated the branch). I cannot merge multiple changeset at once untill the are in sequence (no CTRL + select). It seems Team Foundation Server assumes the team is made of 1 person.

Ask your dev admins to stop depending on proprietary SCMs and get a _better_ open sourced alternative.

Ironically SCM also stands for 'Supply Chain Management' which we sell closed source :) I feel petty about our end users.
