actually, i use linux and don't have a problem at all. but i understand
that there is more to this than having it work adequately for me; if
this product is to be adopted beyond a small niche of developers it must
be made to work well with any/all mainstream products. it's a good
product, and i want to see that the benefits of this good product are
available to as many people as possible. having the attitude, 'it works
for me so i don't care about anyone else' is not likely to give some
project lead a warm, fuzzy feeling when evaluating which VCS to use.

no doubt, SVN is a technically superior product. but many technically
superior products have gone by the wayside because they didn't play well
with existing, 'inferior' products (where's my OS2 disk?).
