Well, since I'm not as lucky as you and I have to work on both
systems, I'd prefer file-based config on Widows too. With CVS for
example I have a shared working dir: most of the time I'm reaching it
through Samba/WinCVS, but sometime it's(1) better working there with
GNU/Linux tools, *natively* :) In this case, any disaggregation
between the two environments leads to double effort, and chances of
failure.

just my 0.02euro,
ciao, lele.

(1) actually "would be": due to different eoln convention, this is a
    little tricky with CVS.
