I'm Cc:'ing the reply to the users list, which is where such questions
belong.

Typically disk access tends to be a bit slower on Windows, but I doubt
you'd notice it in day-to-day work. On the other hand, Windows doesn't
have the issues with permissions in the repository that cause headaches
on Unix. All in all, I'd guess the two are comparable. Althoug in
fairness I must say that the SVN+Apache+Windows combination is less
common, therefore less thorougly tested (by users in real life, that is).

Several people have asked about C# bindings, but as far as I know nobody
is actually implementing them. It should be fairly easy, though; we
already use SWIG for Python and Perl, and SWIG does support C#. There's
also the SVNCPP wrapper, a C++ wrapper of the SVN libraries used by
RapirSVN (http://rapidsvn.tigris.org/), that you could base your C#
bindings on.
