Get latest version on check out

The question whether "Get latest version" of file should be performed on file check out by TFS rather than by user manually was discussed multiple times in the past and is being raised almost on weekly basis in forums.

While it appears that Microsoft will provide at least configuration option in the future versions, it will not be in SP1 (see Richard Berg post).

As Microsoft has been promising to release SP for qute a while, and it is still in the works and will not contain the feature mentioned, it appears that the community will have to learn to get by without that option. I hate conspiracy theories, but it surely appears that the users are being educated against their will. We all shall witness what would be the result.

In my opinion though, at least survey on the issue would be a great idea. Hopefully, someone at Microsoft is listening...
