Sorry, I might not have been 100% clear with my first post. My fault
for trying to be too terse.

200Mhz is lots of computing power iff you use an OS that is designed to
run on such a system. The best solution for Win98 being unable to
provide a file system that the SVN backends can use is to move to a
different OS - you may even see some performance improvements if you can
stray from the Microsoft family of products.

I never wanted to imply that the SVN developers should support OS X, Y
or Z. It runs on *almost* everything already.

Cheers,
Chris
