    Are you able to read documentation and/or product specifications?

    I haven't got a clue, so I'll answer "yes, they both can"
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    I don't know what you can do with suite that you can't do with sourcesafe... I just saw that there are a lot of features that we would not use with team suite, but I thought I would ask here so we don't waste $500 on something that isn't what we need, since there don't seem to be any demos for sourcesafe anywhere.

    Dont waste any money on anything you don't need. Spend $0 on subversion.

    Does that work well with VS 2005, Windows, and MS SQL 2005? It looked like it was more for open source setups...

    Well if you're looking for something which plugs directly into the microsoft IDE's, so you can check in/out directly, then perhaps this

    Subversion runs on linux server, they have a windows client tool set that integrate right into the shell, so that the svn options should show up in the context menus everywhere.

    I have no idea if VS has support for using svn repositories for version control or not, somehow I doubt that it does.

    Subversion uses berkleydb to create the repositories, so no it won't play nice with an mssql db.
    [ using a VCS system to control a db is a waste of resources, you do not need to keep your db in the version control system at all ]

    Subversion supports Windows, and that includes creating and administrating repositories. TortoiseSVN is a popular Subversion client for Windows (works well for me), but you may consider AnkhSVN for use with Visual Studio.

    I dont think versioning database content is a good idea, more likely you would version scripts that create the databases and generate test data, and of course that can be handled by Subversion (or pretty much any other revision control system).
