We used VSS earlier, then switched to the TFS product.

How was the initial setup?

Setup has very specific documentation that needs to be followed 'exactly', and it's straight forward.

Microsoft changes licensing and pricing every year. Best thing to do is reach out to their licensing/sales folks for the latest info.
