    I'm currently trying out some CI servers, and I would be interested
    if any of you could point out some features of Jenkins where you
    think that Jenkins is actually superior to Jetbrain's TeamCity
    (http://www.jetbrains.com/teamcity/) product.
    I'm not asking for a full fledged comparison, but I thought it might
    be interesting to hear if there's any stuff Jenkins does (a lot?)
    better than TeamCity, although TeamCity does seem to have more bells
    & whistles.

The continuous integration systems I've operated have been for a small,

I do not mind the base costs of the Server edition, so number of 
users/projects ain't a problem.
BUT maybe you (or someone else) could comment whether you think the 
number of 3 (three) included agents is sufficient.
At the moment our "howgrown" setup here only has one "agent" and I'm 
wishing to scale to one more at the moment, so 3 seems ample.
Given the administrative overhead of server boxes here where I work and 
the fact that (atm.) we neither wish to go cloud nor can see any decent 
VM setup on-site coming: I think I'll be happy with 3 agents for quite a 
while.
What do others say? How many slave nodes make sense (in Jenkins)?
cheers,
Martin
