This review will attempt to offer a realistic and coherent overview of the failures and partial successes in harnessing rf superconductivity of niobium to particle acceleration. Work in materials, preparation processes, heat transfer, cavity structures and vacuum electronic phenomena are discussed and put in perspective. An attempt is made to draw lessons from these observations and to outline the tasks and opportunities for the future.
