In my previous company we had an intern keen on Linux. She tried a bunch
of SVN GUI clients, and the experience was (worst cases like TSVN
crashing Windows Explorer or similar not considered) really extremely
unpleasant, with random crashes, unconsistent, not-thought-out-at-all
user interface and destroyed-beyond-repair working copies.

I sympathise with being too short tempered or just not having the time
to deal with such issues.

(If blame where to be put, i'd put it 100% on Microsoft. Shell
programming is a hell by itself from my perspective, and the reponsible
developers at Microsoft should be ashamed. Highest praise to the TSVN
developers and contributors to manage to deliver a generally stable
software - despite Microsoft.)

With best regards
