Yes, the author was just making a statement similar to the one I made.
 Namely that if you are using Windows odds are you want to install
TortoiseSVN as it is a good general purpose GUI client for working
with SVN.

If you are storing source code-like files which are mostly plain text
then 100 MB is pretty big. SVN stores changes as deltas so you can
store quite a bit. I do not think the Subclipse repository is 100 MB.
 That said, just Google for "free SVN hosting". There are dozens of
SVN hosting providers and they almost all offer a free plan. So you
ought to be able to find one that suits your needs.

I assume your files need to be private and are not "open source"? If
the content of your files can be publicly accessible then you can just
create a project at Google Code and have unlimited hosting for free.
