[p4] P4Win vs P4V

My team definitely prefers P4Win - we've been using 1998-ish and we're used
to it. We're an all-Windows shop so it doesn't worry us too much.

We keep looking at P4V, but I don't think we'll switch soon.

Having P4Win in a seperate install is something our IT department likes,
though - they have fewer options to worry about.

What do Windows users tend to use most - P4Win or P4V? I thought that since
P4V is cross-platform, it would be the strategic direction that Perforce
would go when developing the product. So I recommended that we use it in our
team before evaluating both of them. However, I'm finding that P4Win has
useful features that P4V (2005.2) doesn't - e.g. Safe automatice resolve,
linking submitted changelists to jobs, viewing workspace files not in the
depot. That's really annoying!
