We have been using Perforce with Windows 2000 server and clients for several
months. We recently updated to the 2000.1 release from the previous one. It
seems a stable, robust and reliable solution and it is working well for us.
My only negative comment about the server would be that the case
insensitivity causes problems when one wishes to rename a file or folder by
changing only the case of the filename. In these circumstances, Perforce
does not recognize that a change has occurred and therefore does not store
the change. I've had to jump through hoops to sort this out on several
occasions, and I don't have a workaround which preserves history information
for the files affected.
