[p4] VS: Perforce vs Seapine Surround?

Perforce should have also had full marks for "no hidden costs." One of
my great frustrations when choosing a tool was that nobody, except
Perforce, publishes their licensing fees on their web site, in black and
white. Renewal fees are also clearly spelled out in black and white on
Perforce's web site. The renewal fees are in no way "hidden."

Even after contacts with sales people for other tools, I couldn't get a
quote on their licensing fees.

Cool chart.

I do think Perforce should have gotten a full mark for "Restore
any change any time" and maybe a partial for "Private branching"
(unless they mean the ability to keep intermediate revisions
locally; Perforce certainly doesn't prevent the creation of
private branches in the repository).
