Could I also add LizardTF (http://www.codeplex.com/lizardtf) to this list? It's rather like Tortoise SVN, uses shell extensions and the TFS APIs and has bespoke diff/history/merge tools.

Looks like an interesting client for the TFS.
What are the differences between it and the build-in explorer (for someone not familiar with Tortoise)?
