I use svn through Cygwin on Win XP (and haven't seen any problems yet). I'm
using Cygwin for two reasons:
 - The tab-completion in Windows Command Prompt is a pain, cycling through
partial matches rather than listing them. (I haven't seen any obvious way to
config this.)
 - I prefer Bash scripting to DOS scripting.

Thanks for everyones' hard work in making such a great tool!
