If you’ve ever used it, then you know ClearCase sucks. But let me tell you, if you haven’t used ClearCase MultiSite, which is the version for distributed development, you don’t yet understand the meaning of the word “suck”. If you can, imagine a slower, harder to administer, more expensive version of ClearCase. That’s MultiSite — but only if your sites are working on completely seperate projects! If your distributed developers want to work together on the same project, or god forbid, on the very same files, then I can guarantee that your imagination is not sufficient to fully envision the universe of pain that awaits your every working hour.
You might think all that money would buy you a system that lets developers on different continents work together as if they are in the same building. How naive! No, instead MultiSite allows developers on different continents to work together just as easily as if they are on different planets.
