What build-in version control? Are you talking about the local history? That really isn't a replacement for CVS, even if working alone - you can't define tags, branch etc. Let alone that it allows you to collaborate with others, merge changes etc.
Many companies are nowadays switching from CVS to SVN. And there are a lot of other alternatives used, many of them commercial.
The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus

I guess that's was misled me. Neither WinCVS nor the Eclipse CVS plugin are version control systems, they are just clients for CVS, one of the existing VCS'.
The Eclipse CVS plugin is quite good. When I don't work in Eclipse, I prefer TortoiseCVS.
