We just can't figure out what to do.

Team Edition is too expensive for anyone here to justify and has lots of extras but it would most closely duplicate what we have here with VS 2003 Enterprise with Visual Source Safe.

Also, many of our team work on projects by ourselves and fulfill many roles, so we would want elements of each Team role version at different times. Getting all the roles/features that we will need from time to time is too great a cost.

We are seriously considering considering a lower end version (Standard or Professional)and then gain the extra capabilities through open source software, especially for the source code control (Subversion). We may even throw out Visual Studio in favor of better tools from Borland or others and try Mono related environments to see if those are capable enough for us.

MS wants to have the high end market that Compuware and others have had, but MS doesn't seem to be supplying broad enough tools in the low end now. MS seems to have over thought this and not considered that the tools should be very available and inexpensive in order to drive adoption.

It may be buh-bye Microsoft for us.
