Why? You're in a Windows shop, where all the developers and business
people are happy using Windows, and spent 3 years ridiculing you for
mentioning Linux. Maybe for your servers you'd like the extra stability,
performance and remote maintenance you get from Unix, but why are you
trying to foist Linux onto the desktop users? The fact that Subversion,
including the server, works great on Windows and is easy to install is a
*credit* to the Subversion developers.

Linux package support for Joe's DIY Homebrew Linux Distro might not be
there yet, but it's mostly because Joe hasn't needed Subversion yet or
got around to packaging it. If the Subversion developers actually tried
to keep up with all the Linux distros, we'd still be waiting for 1.0 to
come out...

Cheers,
Mike.

p.s. Apologies to anyone called Joe who's working on a Linux distro... ;-)
