The problem isn't really Clearcase per-se. The problem is that the 'dynamic
view' requires a *lot* of network traffic, and when the network isn't super
reliable and *very* fast, it doesn't support very many users each with a
dynamic view, each doing compiles. At GoXXXXX, where I recently was a victim
of downsizing, we had 60 developers banging on our 100MBit network. We *used*
to complain that the CVS update was slow. Hah! The *regular build* with
Clearcase was three to four times slower, depending on network usage.
