Can FogBugz be integrated with VSS at all? I am very impressed with FogBugz on my current trial but we already use VSS and are happy with it.
When we investigated this, we discovered that Visual SourceSafe does not have any kind of trigger mechanism that allows it to inform other applications when something has been checked in, so there was no good way to integrate with it.
Somehow the CruiseControl (http://cruisecontrol.sourceforge.net/) folks figured out how to detect when something has changed in a VSS repository. Probably via polling.

I agree with the benefits of a link to VSS.
You know, there's a very simple, low-tech solution to that problem. When you fix a bug, write a list of the version numbers of the files you changed (along with the file names). Then add that file to the bug details. So in future you can refer to those numbers and use VSS to diff the files. Once you get used to doing that it takes almost no time at all but provides full traceability.
