What beta?  CVS is not in beta.  There is a beta of a new version of 
WinCVS, but nobody's forcing anyone to download that.  Use 1.2 instead
of 1.3b8 if that's your concern.

And what's CVSNT?  If you mean CVS on NT, then I can't comment on
data loss, except to say that I wouldn't trust an MS OS not to lead
to data loss in any case, but we used CVS on an NT file share for months
before moving it to pserver on Linux and had no troubles with either.
