小弟不才，在 MKS 工作，上班没式胡乱搜索，竟然发现了这个论坛。 国内真的用人用 MKS Integrity 么？
我觉得最大的区别，是定位不同吧，MKS 已经不是单纯的 SCM 软件了。只是其中一部分，我们公司内部用得更多的是作为需求分析，缺陷管理，项目管理，测试管理，开发资源管理，任务分配，还有各种报表的生成，版本管理已经变成很小的一部分了。
所以，不太容易根上述的这些产品来比较，比如 RIM(黑草莓) 之前的配置，是用 perfoce 做版本管理，DevTrack 做缺陷管理，测试案例和结果记录好像是用 Excel，需求分析貌似用 Word.如今用一个系统解决了问题。
所以，我觉得横向比较的话，应该是 MKS Integrity 跟 Perforce+DevTrac+HP Quality Center 等等比较，但是多系统集成又是另外一个麻烦的事情。
所以不太好比较。MKS 更注重 ALM，SCM 只是有机结合的一部分。

我自己觉得可能有以下几条原因： 1) 售前支持这块没有做出影响力。一个比较典型的例子就是 IBM rational 的 clearcase,clearquest,这些不但 IBM 每年举行 Rational 大会推广，自己还要开一些讲座，培训等等进行推广。而 MKS 这块在中国几乎没的声音。要不是我这家公司在用，我真不知道 MKS 到底是个什么样子，以前也只是听说过这么个东西。 2) 售后支持这块,刚才你也说了 MKS 是国内的代理卖，代理只管卖，但是他们肯定也不会花很大的力气去宣传的，卖出去之后肯定也不会总走访客户，提供一些培训等等。 3) 国内的大公司用 MKS 的，一般都是总部买了，自己拿过来用。真要是让小公司自己去选择，我估计多数会选择 subversion 等开源免费的工具。 至于国内的大公司，垄断性行业，这些都不差钱的，IBM 又很重视，所以 Rational 所占的份额相当的大。
至于你说的语言问题。。。。现在早已经不是问题了。都什么年代了，还提语言问题。 文档，概念，定制性高等等也不是问题，Rational clearcase 都蹩脚到那种程度了，国内很多大公司不还用的很 happy。现在不是关心国内公司怎么用的问题，更应该关注一下让国内的人都知道有这么个东西，让大家去尝试的用用。国内 clearcase 都已经占有很大的份额了，尤其是中高端客户.看看目前 clearcase 和 MKS 的用户数量，就是一个很好的例子。
ps：IBM 有专门的 consultant 去专门给客户做定制，做咨询，做二次开发。
