If you're on a non-Windows machine, P4V is about the only graphical 
solution that I know of.  (Whatever happened to TkP4 or was it P4TK?).

Every time I've tried to use P4V, I've found it very unintuitive when 
compared with P4Win.  It may accomplish the same thing, but it seemed to 
take a lot more effort (clicks, etc.).  I seem to recall the terminology 
being different between the two clients as well.

And since there hasn't been any official word of P4Win being deprecated, 
there hasnt't been a need to switch.
