a, but ALL tools have some issues. I've used TFS before, and aside from it's hideous web UI, the source control portion VS integration seems to work OK.

Any concrete reasons to NOT use it?

Hi Kevin,

No, there are no concrete reasons NOT to use the thing. TFS works fine. Like any complex system it requires some administration. You're going to get the same response from the development community that you'll get any time you ask them what the best text-editor or compiler is. The latest "fad" among developers for this kind of thing is GIT. You're probably in a shop that has TFS and all the cute answers telling you to switch to GIT are as productive as all the "switch to Linux" crap. All you asked for was books on the subject.

Go to APress.COM and search the titles there. You'll find several pertaining to TFS so you can learn what you need to know.
