When Windows 95 came out, my mobile phone was a single-purpose, transportable Panasonic EF-6151EA and Visual SourceSafe was my version control system (another single-purpose technology). Now I have what is fundamentally a computer in my pocket - a Samsung Focus Windows Phone - and I use Team Foundation Server 2010 for version control, work item tracking, reporting, and more. What other single-purpose technologies are you still depending on from over 15 years ago?

Is there a specific reason they should go with TFS rather than the myriad of other commercial and open- source source control options?
