TortoiseSVN is the one I have heard people talk about on the lists I
use. I have heard people recommend it. So I look in the FAQ for
information about it. I specifically looked to see if there were
cross platform variations on it. The FAQ says:

Currently, there are no similar applications available for neither
Macs nor Linux.

So, it's fairly clear from the wording that there is no point in looking
elsewhere, for anything similar. I am saying that for some kinds of
similarity, this is misleading. I'm not saying there is a deliberate
attempt to mislead. I'm not laying blame anywhere. I'm simply pointing
out that unless similarity is defined, this will lead others to conclude
that nothing comparable, even unfavourably comparable, exists.

Changing it to something like:

For Macs or Linux there is nothing that compares to TortoiseSVN,
especially when it comes to the features we value. Other GUIs for
using SVN do exist, however, and one place to look would be
(more specifically
http://subversion.tigris.org/project_links.html#clients ). Searching
the Subversion list archives at
would be a good thing to try, too.

would solve the problem from my point of view.

I'm not on that list yet, not having chosen to proceed with svn or cvs, as
explained earlier...
