Personally I use the cmdline, but from what I see on the irc channel
Tortoise is quite popular with the windows crowd. We don't have
actual datapoints, so I'm not going to throw usage percentages
around. Neither should you. Secondly, if Tortoise crashes on
you, do you try and reproduce and post adequate bugreports on

They are and always have been. Mind you, _I_ am a windows user too.
Aswell as a *nix user.

Totally irrelevant. And, to use a version control system you don't need
to be able to write software. And even if you do, it doesn't make you
a qualified programmer. That aside, people use version control for
websites, keeping track of documents, gift lists, etc. Stuff very
little to do with software development.
