Those who think ClearCase is hard just haven't spent two minutes thinking about how it is organised. It's basically a database with views to select specific versions of files from the database. It's best trick is the ability to walk both the file tree and the version tree for a file/directory using normal file system tools. It's most annoying feature is performance - you really REALLY need to understand how to setup the VOBs across multiple machines and that can affect the layout of the code.

Re: License
I think Peforce should never be in the same sentence with. Clearcase.

Perforce is a seriously great product.

Clearcase is inherently wrong. Everything in it. Is there to make your life more difficult so you complain to your manager and the corporation has to hire a ClearCase consultant and spend more money on it.

Since 2005.1 it's been increased to two users and five workspaces and Perforce is 100% free (as in beer) for Open Source use.

License

The license for Perforce isnt really free for non-commercial use. It is a license free for up to two users and two client workspaces.

Other than that, perforce rocks. It is something of a mix between subversion and ClearCase.
