About the crashes: which version did you try? The latest version for
Windows is 0.3.1. You dont have to have subversion installed on your
computer to use RapidSVN.

And about the concepts:
In my understanding RapidSVN struggles with the following problem or
maybe call it paradoxon:
- being easy to understand and use for a non-technical audience
- being feature-rich and consistent with the underlying version
   control concepts

Pros for RapidSVN:
- cross platform (Linux/Unix, Windows now and Mac OS X in the near
- performance compared to Java/Swing application

Cons for RapidSVN:
- still doesnt support all the features svn has
- still in heavy development
