I use TortoiseSVN both at work, and generally -- I keep my home
directory under Subversion and on Windows I use TortoiseSVN to keep
local copies up to date (since I use many different machines, and
really really want all my goodies present on each -- see
http://www.onlamp.com/pub/a/onlamp/2005/01/06/svn_homedir.html for a
whole essay about this).

At work, there are perhaps 10 people who use svn at all; I'd guess at
least half use TortoiseSVN. As you might guess, many of those people
are uncomfortable with the Windows command line; I wouldn't be
surprised if a few didn't even know it existed.

For accessing my home machine, I use svn+ssh, since I don't want to
expose my home machine to any other server besides SSH (well, I guess
I could use svn over http, but I'm too lazy to learn how to configure
Apache). As far as I know, TortoiseSVN is the only Windows svn client
that doesn't need anything extra installed to use svn+ssh, since it
comes with TortoisePlink. (However, I still use pageant, and can't
imagine anyone not using it).

I've tried every svn GUI client out there. There really is no
comparison: TortoiseSVN is brilliantly designed; the UI is smooth and
_almost_ intuitive; it's _maintained_; you can talk to the developers;
it's the opposite of abandonware ... more incoherent ranting about the
failings of every other GUI client can be found at
