If you standardize on something, you'll become more efficient. Don't believe me? Facebook runs 1800 database servers with two Database Administrators. Why? Everyone uses MySQL.

Companies that don't become more efficient, eventually die. You know why Southwest is profitable while most ever other airline is struggling? They fly one type of plane.

Does that apply to source control implementations?

Yes. I'm of the belief you get on board with the company standard. Don't like it? Then quit and work out of your basement for peanuts.

Yes, isn't that amazing? Come up the six floor and you can find Adam and I talking about this nearly every day ;)
